Good interviewing is not a talent: it’s a skill you build with study and practice. This set of online videos trains you to be a rockstar in SQL Server database administration job interviews by giving you practice video interviews where you can warm up with 100 real-world questions. You get:

  • 70 technical SQL Server DBA interview practice questions (and answers)
  • 10 “situational” DBA interview practice questions with strategies on how to answer
  • 20 questions for YOU to ask your prospective employer

“I accidentally stumbled upon the course just 24 hours before my DBA interview so I downloaded it right away. I received a job offer a couple of days later. I used a lot of Kendra’s great advice and it helped me to be more confident and organized during the interview. It seemed they were more impressed with the questions I asked (which I took from Kendra’s video) than with the questions they asked me.” – Jane Doe (name changed for obvious reasons)
