I unemployed right now so I'm stuck looking for a job and one of my weak points is I've never been good at interviewing. I always seem to flub some answer that I know but it never seems to come out right.

So, I'm on this interview with a non-technical hiring manager (who somehow is development manager) and we are going over his list of questions and we hit on Interfaces. So I go over the standard Interface blurb and when I'm done he tells me I'm wrong on the fact that you can not use access modifiers (private and protected specificly) in Interfaces, more over he's seen access modifiers used to limit the scope of the "private set" on properties!

Like I said, I've never been good at interviewing so I inform him that in the .NET world you can not use the access modifiers private and protected in Interfaces and that he might be confused with something he saw in an abstract class. Well, he had it written down on his little sheet and there was no way I was going to win this argument so I let it go. Wonder if I will get this job?

Uh, better question: even if they offered would you *take* the job?!

If these guys are that messed up technically, that might be a huge smell of what you'd encounter if you did take a gig.

I know unemployment sux though, but still. I was unemployed and took a gig with a company that I knew the VP's were trying to overthrow the CEO gong show...I would have been better off on EI.
