Interviews and Interviewing

Here we discuss the processes of preparing for, and getting, interview invitations, and conducting yourself during interviews.
  1. Preparing for Interviews:

  2. Conducting yourself during an interview:

  3. Getting Interviews:

  4. Responding to a student's email, I gathered a set of links about interviews (taking and giving) that I like, and thought they might be useful for you. Note that I don't agree with everything said, but do agree with at least most of the posts:

  5. Here are a few links to help your job search:

    1. CNY jobs
      If you search on C++ or C# you'll find lots of hits. Some of those are for companies, like Lockheed-Martin and Sensis that do classified work and need citizenship. But there are still alot of other opportunities. I got 90 hits for C++, 23 hits for C#, 105 for .Net, and 63 for Java. There were even 24 hits for Cobol.
    2. America's Job Exchange
      Again, I got lots of hits on the same searches as above. This site allows you to enter any city you want.
  6. More support for job searches:

    Here are links to the resumes' of Dhaval Trivedi, Ghanashyam Namboodiripad and Tilak Patel that are very good examples of how to prepare one. Note the emphasis on accomplishments. Many of you will not have all the great experience they describe, never-the-less, the style and intent are worthy of emulation.

    Links with advice about resumes, searches, coverletters etc:
