    Interview: The Final Insult

    It's the last SDL. Really. We have had 2 + years of fun and games here at Security Weekly, but it's time for the SDL team to ride off into the sunset (or at least crash into the sunset billboard. I want to thank Russ, Paul, Sam, Mark, John and Joe for all the good times and great shows. Today, though we are going to do one last show covering "the interview". As Russ and I will have to interview for new hosting jobs soon, well, everyone has to interview for jobs. It sucks, you hate, we hate it, but you need to prepare. So, today, we invited Pam Fournier back to talk to us about questions with good and bad answers to interview questions. Hang around for the last one.

    Pam and Russ ask questions to Doug and Evan.

    Doug's two tech questions he always asks interview candidates:

    • What is your favorite networking port and why?
    • If you got a chance to program today, what language would you choose and why?
    • What to do when you get to interview (shake hands, be polite and pleasant, don’t be nervous

    2. Why are you interested in the position/and or company
    3. What is your greatest strength
    4. What is your greatest weakness
    5. What kind of boss do you prefer
    6. Tell me about a time you dealt with a difficult situation and what was the outcome
    7. What type of work environment do you do well in
    8. Why should we hire you over another candidate
