    Without divulge too many details, I will explain

    Client in US of A is changing for me.
    New client want to conduct face to face over video chat.
    If he pass me, my company will start bill the new client for my service.

    if I pass, i will change my going nowhere project to this place where i can get to work with new mess. Current project is not more messy now. It is clean due to rubbish collector Nagesh.
    On downside, less time spending online.

    Worry not Dhromed, I am not going anywhere. Same desk possible new computer with i7 processor and better monitor.



  •  Basically Nagesh is going to be interviewed as an offshore consultant for compan x based in the US.  He wants to brush up on common interview questions.

    Non-technical questions.

    Try to avoid this type of interviews

     



  • None of the question you have in that carton were asked. Look like I maybe getting assignment soon.

    They ask some question on mvc architect and hibernet. I told them what i use in current project.
    They were not interest in any further details. So that was it.

    I think you'd better take part in the English language training institutions, so that your English language proficiency will improve.


  • OK, so... it was a spam post, but it was accurate. Instead of deleting it, can we just get the sig links removed? I think it's quite funny that even the spammers are flaming Nagesh now.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Indeed I did.  I'm tempted to get the full set and give them to in-laws.

     



  • why?

    Non-technical questions.
     

    What is the flight elevation of a migrating sparrow?

    If 42 is the answer, what is the question?

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    How much wood could a woodchuck chuck - if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    The are many different breed of sparrows.

    If sparrow in tropicel country like India, migration is not desired. If sparrow is migrating from North to South wind patern will cause affect. If sparrow is migration South to avoid winter, which is month / country and weather like?
    unless all this detail supplied, impossible to answer ur question.

    Not aware of 42. but look like some common theme in forum.

    Chicken like to cause nusance to car driver population. Here more cows on road than chickens. Sometime bulls also join.

    If part of question make question useless.

    1) African or European?

    2) "What is 6x9?"

    3) He was late for dinner

    4) A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.



  • When your expert friend offers to take telephone interview for you to help you get job, do not answer your phone first if you have different sounding voices.

    Get him to answer the phone first or the interviewer will be left in no doubt of your split personality.

    This really happened while trying to me while trying to recruit an offshore candidate  - one voice answered as Mr X and then got flustered when he realised we were the interviewers.

    Some silence and a short time later a different voice came on the line claiming also to be Mr X who succesfully handled the interview.

    We gave the job to somebody who could come onsite for a face to face interview. 

     

    And if you are recruiting into the offshore oil industry the questions regarding an offshore placement  "are you scared of boats" and "do you get seasick" are quite good ones....

    Or "Are you scared of helicopters/flying?" - of the numerous times I went off-shore, only one rig was a boat (as opposed to a fixed rig) and only one (other) used a boat to get to the rigs - all others were fixed rigs (one was actually an island) and transport to/from them was by air.

    I am curious if you're working for acenture consulting company.



  • No, the phone interview experience  was with  NXP Semiconductors  - we wanted a contractor to help with some Linux device drivers a few years back.

    The guy we ended up with actually was a major writer of a file system (squashfs)  used in many embedded linux platforms. 

     

    And my offshore oil experience was OBC survey on ships in shallow tropical seas or the Caspian Sea with long boat transfers.
