Once you are confident enough about these skills, you can prepare for technical interviews. You can start with coding challenges online and practice your codes on Coding Ninjas Studio

For interviews at Meta, in the initial technical screening round, ensure your introduction drags the interviewer's interest and aligns it with Meta’s mission. While coding, make sure you explain each and every function you write. Writing comments always attracts the interviewer and leaves a good impression on interviewers. After writing the code, ensure you are explaining the complexity analysis. This shows your good grasp of data structures and algorithms. If you are stuck, feel free to discuss this with your interviewer.
