what to expect during an interview

Posted 21 August 2010 - 12:15 PM

Hi All,

I have been doing a Microsoft Certified course in vb.net (Visual Basic Computer Programming) for the last four months. A friend told me to start looking for a job in IT and Software Development (which is what I am aiming for) as soon as possible. I have had the same job now for 12 years working in the Bearing Industry and I dont know what to expect during a job interview. Would anyone please share there experiences with me and give me some pointers before I start applying for jobs (So I am a bit better prepared).

Thanks very much

John

It's VASTLY different from company to company and your location also determines what type of interview you'll get.

My recent interview was a bit weird. I wasn't asked any technical questions, but I was hired on the spot because of my English and thirst for knowledge. Apparently not many people my age here care about Unit Testing or other topics besides 'i do gud oop programming codez'.

One foolproof suggestion is find the dress code, and dress one level above it. If they are completely casual, wear a nice polo; if they wear polos, wear a nice dress shit; if they were dress shirts, use full suit.

Also be completely sincere. Sooner or later the bullshit is found and your reputation is never the same.
