re: Should interviewees be allowed to search for answers? VIEW POST


I have similar opinion. But sometimes, I have observed even at good reputed companies, it’s not only the interviewer but the company itself as well. They force the interviewer to ask such coding questions which might not be even remotely related to the work the hiring team does. The change of mindset needs to happen at even the company level.

If a company is hiring software engineers they need to interview them on software engineering skills. Coding is part of it but not all of it. If a company is hiring just based on how well a candidate can reverse a string or linked list in place, then they probably are looking for hiring just coders and not software engineers.
