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


I totally agree with this. My best experience as an interviewee were those where I was faced with a problem similar to a real life one and where I was encouraged to face it with the usual tools I would use in real life.

Something that is nice to do is also ask high level programming questions. For example if you are interviewing for a JavaScript position it's not a bad idea to test about Event capturing and bubbling, lexical scoping, Promises, Event Loop, etc. You can even prepare your coding challenge with a DOM manipulation situation that would require basic understanding of the event propagation cycle. And even though it's searchable, if the candidate searches with the right words you know they are familiar with those concepts.
