( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Having recently went through a series of interviews (as the inverviewee, not the interviewer), I can only give you one piece of advice: be yourself. I don't dress up for an interview (although I scrape the mud from my boots) for instance. (If they want to hire shiny clothes, let them buy a dress-up doll, that's cheaper). Just be honest in what you like and don't like, what you know and don't know, what you want to do, and what you don't want to do.

As for interview questions, one of the best questions I ever got was (I was interviewing for a Perl position): So tell me, what don't you like about Perl, and how would you change it, after which we had a nice conversation about the object system in Perl. Another inverviewer (for the same position) came with a whiteboard and said write me a program finding files with <some criterium> (and don't use a module that does all the work for you).
