You can now import Project questions (Front-end, back-end, full-stack, and data science) inside HackerRank interview during a live interview. With this feature, interviewers will be able to assess candidates on skills like React, Angular, Nodes, etc. during live interviews and view their code inside the Interview report and rerun the same inside the IDE. This article will walk you through the steps to import projects in HackerRank Interview.
Note: We are introducing a new and improved experience for Projects questions in HackerRank Interviews. This experience will be valid for Front-End, Back-End, and Full-Stack questions. You can learn more about the new feature here.
