    Re: Guide my interview

    Somewhere on the main site there are about four sets of interview questions which make a very good starting point. You will have to provide the answers yourself

    Are you being interviewed or are you hiring someone?

        I am a bit annoyed by the above quote. Multiple comments expected indeed. I would also point out we are a technical Forum and not a personal agency.

        Moving to the Lounge as this is NOT a Windows Server technical question.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

            well.. one of the questions I was asked in my interview was "tell me how you would go about converting our mail system from an external pop3 provider to an internal exchange system"
            my (now) boss knew I had no exchange experience - I'd prevoiously said that in the interview.
            However - on the strength of how i answered the question, the procedural thinking, and the process guidelines, things like that.. are what won me points.

            what's most important is - which of those things CAN you do. you need to think up situations - when something has occured.. for instance:

            "Can you tell us about a time you needed to manage a priority 1 incident. What happened, how was the issue resolved, and what did you do through out the process"

            One I intend to ask the next interviewees we have is the following:
            "one of our clients has an issue with their PC.. the issue they have described is this. How would you go about fixing it"
            and create a totally pointless issue, that may not even have a resolution.
            I intend to do this not because I want to see if they get the right answer, but because it's important that they are able to GET to the answer.. the process they go through. It's a soft skill, troubleshooting, diagnosis, analysis, rather than a hard technical skill in, say, configuring IBM iSeries mainframes
            Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point https://www.petri.com/forums/core/im.../icon_beer.gif
