Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics Meeting: Tech Interviews!
More terrifying than Verilog Synthesis... More stressful than a drive failure... More harrowing than an office move...The Tech Interview!
You sent out 500 resumes and you finally get that call for an interview. What now?
How do you effectively present your skills and experience?
How do you make yourself stand out from the other candidates?
How do you answer the three most important interview questions?
Tell me about yourself?
Why should we hire you?
What are you looking for in your next position?
How can you judge how well you are doing in an interview?
How do you address possible Hiring Manager concerns, and make them feel better about them?
How do you move the process forward?
