    Các bác,

    Em mới quit research một thời gian, đi làm cầm chừng ở một nơi hafl-research, half-programming, sau đó em chuyển sang chỗ khác.

    Thấy các bác xum trò, em chia sẻ với các bác buổi phỏng vấn của em. Hi vọng có một số bác có kinh nghiệm đi làm sẽ chỉ bảo em những thiếu sót để các buổi phỏng vấn sau của em thuận lợi hơn .

    Bests

    First interview in the Netherlands

    [FONT=&quot]First interview in the Netherlands[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]1.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Tell me about yourself[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]I use 3 minutes and 5 phrases to describe my education and working experience. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]2.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Tell me what is your ideal job[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]A good job is a job that suits me, and is a hot job[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]I’m an agile and highly ambitious person, furthermore I love to compare myself with the best people and learn from them. So a good job needs to be challenging, dynamic and must give me access to best people. I don’t love a work which forces me to sit in a Lab for my whole life[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]A hot job these days is in Banking, Finance and Internet[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]3.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] How is your commitment level with each job ?[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]It depends on the team I am working with, I am not happy if my team mates just sit, do exactly what is told, satisfied with their work more than 50% of the time, don’t care about the other parts of the world where people are working much more efficiently [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]4.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Describe your current job[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot][I gives him a lot of details, which gives him an impression that I master the required knowledge for my current job][/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]5.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] What is the difference you make in your current job[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot][I describes exactly my contribution, but this is not what the interviewer wants. He changes his question] [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]6.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] I mean what makes you the right person for that job, what characters do you bring in to your team[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]I would state my personality in three characters[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]I’m an agile person: Changing from a research world of statistical models, to a company world of computer security requires one to be extremely agile. Firstly a research world is emphasized by ideas, while a company world needs something that works that responds to the requirements. Secondly while a statistical model deals too much with probability, a security solution is a zero-and-one of uncertainty: secure or unsecure. [/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]I’m always comparing myself with the best people, I always read to see if somewhere in the world some people are doing some better jobs than mine. When I came to my current company no one gives me any education or training. I must look around to know that rigid software management is not good anymore, people are shifting to Agile Development, Continuous Integration and Test Driven Development. Then, I apply what I learn from the world on a daily basis, which is again a continuous integration of new technology into my work[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]I often ask myself question, and quite some time I come up with good answers. An example in my current work is that, when being exposed to Web Service Security with some huge specification, I ask myself: “Why is it so complicated, is it a breakthrough that I have never heard about? “. But then after searching for a while, I learn that that huge specification is only a “jeu-de-mot” of some big guys like MS, Sun, Oracle to force the world to adopt their technologies and buy their products, they are actually re-inventing the wheel[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]7.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] In your CV, in your skill set you mention that you know about Design Pattern. Could you describe how you use that in your current work[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]I’ve learnt Design Pattern in my Master’s courses. From then I tried to apply it to my work, it might not be professional, but still it helps me. One example is when I build a security utility, given that I can choose one of the two security libraries that are popular now. I use “abstract factory”[/FONT] [FONT=&quot]to separate my main class that is used by the requester (the client or another program that would use my security utility) from the underlying security classes (or Helper classes). Those Helper classes are dedicated for each type of the two security library.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]8.[/FONT][FONT=&quot] It is all clear now. [After spending 15 minutes presenting his team, the interviewer asks me if I have questions][/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]I ask him how his team is working[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]Are people sitting together[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]How often people are meeting[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]Are they active in those meeting (I’ve seen that in some team where there is a non-flat organization, some people just sit to listen, while some are extremely active)[/FONT]

    ·[FONT=&quot]Are they paying a 14-month salary each ear [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]9. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]The interviewer finishes his interview. I would be sent a test on my design and programming skills [/FONT]

    Cảm ơn bác,

    Em thấy forum của các bác cũng giúp ích cho người VN ta, em chỉ đóng góp thêm 1 chút thông tin thôi.

    Em thấy bọn Western và đặc biệt là US có thông tin giúp cho phát triển, nên em cũng muốn người VN mình có cái đó. Hôm nọ em đọc ở đâu đó ai đó nói rằng dân tộc mình 4000 năm (hoặc 2500 năm) nay chẳng có thông tin gì cả, ai nấy sống hồn nhiên câu cá thả diều quen rồi, sau này được các dân tộc tiên tiến nhất thế giới đến dạy dỗ như Pháp, Mỹ, USSR, nhưng cũng không khá lên được, vẫn build the future on a thin air mà thôi.

    Thin-air ở đây tức là toàn các vị tiên sư giáo sĩ, các đảng viên mồm phun châu nhả ngọc nhưng toàn bàn luận những cái đâu đâu, chẳng cụ thể gì cả.

    Mong các bác đừng chê lời em mạo phạm nhé
