Fun interview 'test'

Ever thought an interview could be fun? Well I've been on two so far that I've really enjoyed. The first gave me a programming problem to solve and wanted to see design solution (not the code.) The second interview gave me a 'logic test'. Something were given a list of rules, one must answer questions.

Did you get the jobs? Usually when I've hit it off with the interviewer, I get a job offer.

I'm an old C++ programmers and I hated the technical interviews. But even worse were Visual Basic tests where you had to regurgitate perfect code in a completely unrealistic programming environment.

The design solution problem would be fun, but I suck at logic tests that I can't solve with a for loop and nested if statements.

I have a few things in the pipeline to make decisions about - so we'll see.
Come come, with the right conditions statements you too could solve a logic problem!

I loooove puzzles. All the computer and video games I loved were puzzles. And logic puzzles are totally neat. The interviews sound like fun. And puzzlesolving is as good for computers as they are for novels.

I so hope you get the right and perfect job for you...with the right and perfect people.
