Looking for a job, you really want to read this

I have interviewed many people, and many of them had problems with the questions I have asked. Their problems usually stemmed from not having answers to the questions that are discussed in this article: 10 Answers You Should Know Before Your Job Interview – Dumb Little Man, as well as more interesting questions designed to probe their experience and knowledge beyond the point that the candidate could answer.

The best answer I have heard was to the question, “Why did you leave your last job?” – I have had many answers but the one I remember best was ‘I do not know’, from an extremely well qualified straight A’s candidate. Huge FAIL.
