What interview techniques should you use to hire the best C developers?

When hiring the best C developers, it’s important to always remember your goal for the interview. It’s to evaluate your potential candidate’s skills and understanding within the window time of the interview.


Here are some helpful tips for interview questions and techniques that you can apply to determine the best C developer for you and your tech project.


Always ask questions aimed for effective assessment

It’s important to ask questions to the interviewee that can help you assess them with a standard gauge already in mind. Your queries should help you assess if the candidate meets and possibly exceed said criteria. Based on their answers, do they have similar beliefs that align with your company’s culture, values, and goals; do they meet the required competencies and expectations of the role as a C developer for your tech project.


You can easily determine important points by simply asking the interviewees. Know the level of their in-depth knowledge and understanding of the C programming language. It’s strongly encouraged to ask about their most recent projects like this a way to know the practical application of their technical skills. Also, note how they talk about their recent project and how well do the C developer candidates explain concepts that aren’t understandable to non-technical people.


Also, note their communication skills. It’s a common stereotype that developers are quite shy and very quiet, these are often correlated to the nature of their profession. Regardless of these sweeping misconceptions about developers, a person’s communication skills are still very important as these help in a lot of misunderstanding and problems that could possibly arise in the future. Pay close attention to the non-verbal cues exhibited by the interviewees through the C developers throughout the interview session. A few things to always take note of is the tone of voice, body language, their posture, frequency in eye contact, and their use of hand gestures. It indicates how comfortable they are with interaction and how they handle being the centre of attention when presenting something. Their soft skills are still equally important as this maintains a good working relationship with you and to both of your in-house and offshore development teams.


Conduct technical tests

For any highly technical position, such as C developers, it’s encouraged to conduct an online programming test for them as these assess their knowledge, practical application of their technical skills, and critical thinking.


By the end of these tests and interviews, choosing which of the skilled C developer should you hire based on their qualifications and other valuable assets that could help you further is the wisest choice.


Here are some sample questions that you can ask your candidates:


Q: What will be the output when the following code is executed? Kindly explain.


#include <stdio.h>
#define SQUARE(a) (a)*(a)
int main() {
   printf("%d\n", SQUARE(4));
   int x = 3;
   printf("%d\n", SQUARE(++x));

A: The answer is in fact undefined, and depends on the compiler being used. Some compilers will result in 16 and 20, while others will produce 16 and 25.

One might expect the second use of

the SQUARE macro to yield 16, just like the first use of the SQUARE macro. However, macros are processed by the preprocessor, a step that takes place before the actual compilation begins. Expanding the second macro will show what actually gets compiled:



The evaluation of the pre-increment operation ++x is where the undefined behaviour in C comes in. With some compilers, the macro will reduce to (4)*(5), while in other cases, it will be evaluated as (5)*(5)


Q: Why is it usually a bad idea to use gets ()? Suggest a workaround.

A: The function gets() reads characters from the stdin and stores them at the provided input buffer. However, gets() will keep reading until it encounters a newline character. Unless the buffer is large enough, or the length of the line being read is known ahead of time, gets() can potentially overflow the input buffer and start overwriting memory it is not supposed to, wreaking havoc or opening security vulnerabilities.


One way to work around this issue is to use fgets(). It allows you to put a limit on the maximum number of characters to read:


fgets(b, 124, stdin);

Q: What is the difference between structs and unions?

A: A struct is a complex data type that allows multiple variables to be stored in a group at a named block of memory. Each member variable of a struct can store different data, and they all can be used at once.


struct a {
   int x;
   char y;
} a;

For example, you may store an integer in x, and a character in y above, independent of each other.


A union, on the other hand, stores the contents of any member variable at the exact same memory location. This allows the storage of different types of data at the same memory location. The result is that assigning a value to one member will change the value of all the other members. Unlike struct, only one member of the union type is likely to be useful at any given time.


union b {
   int x;
   char y;
} b;

For example, storing a character in y may automatically change the integer you read from x to something meaningless or unpredictable.
