Online blog-thing The Daily WTF details crimes against sanity perpetrated by clueless pseudo-techies and know-nothing managers. Sneak has seen more than a few CVs boasting of “an eye for detials”, so was particularly keen on a recent post about job interviews. WTF contributor Jeff L relates how his firm had created its own proprietary programming language, called Probol, an oddity that he would explain to potential recruits early in the interview. “One enthusiastic candidate immediately said, ‘Wow, that should be fun. I just finished reading a book on Probol last week!’”, Jeff relates. Sneak couldn’t help agreeing with a follow-up comment. It would be very hard to resist saying: “Oh really, which book? Could you bring it in? We have our own book, but it’s out of date...”
Do tell Sneak your own tales of iffy interviews.
