No, not me… :-P

Interviewing is a skill that is as real as actually doing the work you’re hoping to get hired for. It’s a tough job unto itself.

I was helping a friend out in prepping for some interviews coming up in her future. I have a job… but I have to say working through some of the challenges I set up — because I didn’t know the answer myself — felt like a real interview for me too.

It’s freaky. Reminded me of an internal class I took at Amazon of how to interview. One of the exercises is to observe, interview, or be interviewed. Even though it’s completely fake since everyone in the room already works for Amazon and no matter how hard you flub the three minutes you have you’ll still have a job it’s still damn stressful.

I guess I can still do it I suppose.
