The third year of curating my Java reading and sharing the best stuff here, on Baeldung … here we go…

Interviewing well can feel a lot like luck, and having been on both sides of the table I can definitely see why that's the case.
In my own experience interviewing candidates, the most helpful thing has been not allowing myself to settle into an interviewing rhythm and always keeping my eye on how I can do interviewing better.
