I'm currently working as a Haxe game developer and I've been there for 2.5 years. The current manager and I don't get along too well so I'd like to move on. I'd also like to get out of the gaming industry.
Here are the recruiter's suggestions to prepare:
a) Know the general algorithms in CompSci at a high-level and particular functions using any language (i.e. bubble-sorts).
a) Be prepared to address server-concepts, therefore conduct a review of Computer Science elements.
Also, I've only been out of university for 3 years and while I know about 50% of the job requirements I'm not sure how they can grill me for 3 hours.
The job is more demanding than my current one but also pays 25k more. I'm having my doubts about being able to perform at the expected level.
How does one fail gracefully in this case?
How do I 'prepare' when I hardly know anything about the topic?
