in reply to Stop with the interview questions already

Hmm,

Methinx I must be approaching this interview/job thing wrong (or I'm practicing it in the wrong place) - in the many interviews I've attended over the years, I've yet to be asked the same question twice, or more ... so if I get asked a question to which I don't know the answer and it's of interest, I research the answer solely for my self-edification & benefit i.e. with minimal, if any, expectation of having to answer the same question in the same circumstances.

Aside from any questions about such strategems WRT cheating any prospective employer, I submit that the only people being cheated are the candidates themselves!! Worse still, the paucity of the incumbent inevitably resulting from such interview processes can, for those of us unfortunate enough to earn a living at this game, only serve to bring the profession down.

A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
