I was asked by our company’s HR guy to take part in a job interview with a candidate and ask a few “technical” questions. The candidate was final year undergraduate at the Technical University and hasn’t worked anywhere yet (at least his CV was silent about it), so I prepared really easy questions for him. The interview started like this:
Me: Can you tell us about some of your bigger projects? What were they about? What technologies did you use?
Candidate: Well… I haven’t done anything bigger. Only the tasks they gave me at the university. And some examples from the books.
