Just a short little blurb here.
As I have stated before; I’m looking for a job. I have actually been reduced to staffing services, which have yet to yield any promising leads so far. However, one has given me pause and I don’t think I can expect much from the recruiter who I spoke with.
Just to be clear, I used to interview people at previous jobs. I was the one you had to impress, so I know what questions to expect, and how to handle all of them. Well, maybe all of them:
Recruiter: “Can you tell me what servers you know?”
Me: “I have built, configured, and deployed mail servers (typically Microsoft Exchange), domain controllers, file servers, NAS arrays, user management arrays, test environments, web farms, and DNS servers.”
Recruiter: “Are you familiar with software?”
Me: “Um, any specific software?”
Recruiter: “Just software. Are you familiar with it?”
Me: “Uhhhh . . . yes? I know it exists. I work with it regularly. I guess that qualifies as ‘familiar’.”
I was honestly expecting him to start asking about working with “the internets”. Have to keep looking I guess.
