Ah, the dreaded remote live coding interview, A virtual arena where nerves and screens collide. As I sit here, staring at a blank code pad, My mind racing, my fingers poised to type.

But alas, the connection lags, the video freezes, My thoughts interrupted, my flow disrupted. I try to explain my logic, my process, But the words stumble out, disjointed and jumbled.

Oh, how I long for a better way, To showcase my skills, my true capabilities. Perhaps a take-home project, where I can work at my pace, Or a pair programming session, where collaboration thrives.

Let’s embrace asynchronous communication, And provide candidates the time and space they need. Forcing them to perform under pressure, Only reveals a fraction of what they can achieve.
