Un-SQL Friday #005: Bad Interviews

Yesterday a friend told me a tale of an interview he conducted with a, shall we say, less than desirable candidate. (Most of his responses started with “Well, there was this girl, and we were at a party….”). This, again, is an Un-SQL Friday topic if ever there was one!

I hereby declare this Friday Un-SQL Friday. While T-SQL Tuesday is “…the SQL Server blogosphere’s first recurring, revolving blog party….on the chosen [SQL-related] topic,” UN-SQL Friday is a completely intermittant blog party about something SQL-adjacent.

Read this blog, and then write whatever you want about Bad Interviews. Be sure to mention in your blog that you’re writing for Un-SQL Friday, and link to this post. Oh, and have it up any time before midnight on Monday, July 25. Extra credit if you get your submission in ON Friday…an A+ gets you an imaginary virtual gold star!

You can write about a bad interview you’ve given, or one you’ve conducted, or what you imagine to be a bad interview…whatever you like, really.

Happy days,

  1. Hrm, not sure I have a blog length story, but I’ll see what I can think of.

    It might make sense to have a hash tag for this to read on the show for shorter stories that you read on ustream like the reverse Godfather one.
