Thinking back on my interviews and the questions that were asked I remembered one that really struck me as odd. I can’t remember what interview I was in when the question was asked but the question was something like, “Do you miss programming in school?”.
I had to think about it for a minute because at first I thought it was loaded question. As I slowly answered I thought to myself, “don’t hang yourself here Stephan…”. The fact of the matter is that I do miss programming, to a point. I am glad it is not all we do in our major but at the same time I think to get a good amount of programming in since most of us will end up in programming positions at first.
So I answered the question that way, stating that I miss programming and that I think there should be more in our program. Hopefully I did not shoot down my chances of getting that job.
