The current invitation (August 2017) is for T-SQL Tuesday #93. Invitation from Kendra Little. The next invitation should be released on Sept 5.
Interviewing Patterns and Anti-Patterns
What advice do you have for people preparing for or going through an interview?
Feel free to be creative on this topic. Take whichever approach you like best:
You may focus on patterns to follow for success
You may list anti-patterns, too: things that might seem like a good idea, but are a recipe for disaster
You can write about your own highs and lows as a candidate or as an interviewer
Be as specific as you want for interviewing for or hiring for your given skillset, whether you’re a developer, DBA, manager, consultant, or something else entirely
Whichever route you take, it’s probably a good idea to disguise the identities of past employers, candidates, etc.
Personally, I’m going to take the approach of writing about an interview for a SQL Server position that I completely bombed as a candidate, and why it ended up being one of the best learning experiences of my life (although it was painful at the time). It taught me a lot about successful interviewing patterns.
I can’t wait to learn about YOUR interviewing patterns and anti-patterns as well.
Get ready, get set, get blogging!
