Interviewing

0 comments suggest edit

I’m conducting some phone interviews today for a C++ contractor/employee. Man it’s been a long time since I’ve conducted interviews. I wish I kept a list of my favorite questions to ask.

Maybe I’ll start off with:

  • What is your age?
  • What is your sexual orientation?
  • What is your race?
  • Who are you going to vote for?
  • Are you married or pregnant?
  • What’s your religion?
  • How fat are you?
  • Would you be willing to line my pocket for this job?

Oh wait. Those are the questions that are ILLEGAL to ask. Doh!

Perhaps I should just re-read The Guerilla Guide to Interviewing.
