Interviewing is a lot harder than it looks. Think about the context. I'm going to put you in a room with a stranger. All you know about them is from what they put on this poorly phrased piece of weighted, tan paper.

Rule no.2: Be friendly! …Continue

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue
