Why you should never end an interview too early...

Hey community! Just wanted to share my two cents from doing interviews with over 20 companies.

Interviews can be frustrating and I get that there's an urge to just finish and put the phone down before you say something that makes you look bad but trust me, not building a rapport with an interviewer is far worse. 

Use interviews as an opportunity to ask questions about the company and learn about the interviewer even if you finish your coding challenge early. This shows them that you are passionate and you care. 

There was one company at which I aced their technical interview but didn't really bond with the interviewer and ended the call early. Never heard from them again. 

The company that did give me an offer was one which I had a great time talking to my interviewers.

Hope this helps!
