Read the link above to know how IT companies’ technical interview should be. Not asking some quiz. It is really frustrating when you are asked such questions in interview which you know is never going to be needed in the job. When you get reject because of those questions, and the interviewer chooses to ignore your real-world skills then it becomes darn frustrating.
I remember getting screened out of Amdocs’ first round of written exams because of some maths question! How the hell maths question decided how my CS knowledge is? They might reason that there are too many candidates and interviewing all is not possible; well if that is so then why not use lucky draw? Because such arbitrary questions and lucky draw will give same result, and lucky draw is easier to conduct. Well yes, lucky draw will draw much more criticism, so we are bound to see such arbit questions anyway.
So, all the best job seekers.
