Whenever a company hires you then they are not interested to ask you questions like what is polymorphism or the difference between do while and while loop etc. They are actually interested in your skills which you can’t show in half an hour or an hour interview. For this, you need a portfolio on which there a lot of projects based on your programming skills.
