Ask Slashdot: Re-Learning How To Interview As a Developer?

yrogerg Practice and Study (218 comments)

A couple of tips: 1) When you leave an interview, spend some time immediately after and write down the questions they asked and give yourself an honest evaluation of how you answered them. What did you miss? What could you have said better? 2) Before you go to the interview, do a search for "behavioral interview questions" and pick several different topics. Come up with good answers to those questions. Use the "STAR" response (Situation/Task, Actions, Results) and really plan out your answers 3) This sort of goes hand in hand with #2, but think of your top achievements. Make a list of great things that you did as they relate to communication, managing a project, leading a team, etc. etc. You know what kind of job you're applying for, plan for the interview and have your stories ready to go. They're not going to ask those exact questions, but if you have a list of possible answers, you'll at least nail some of the questions.

Producing power was the wrong word choice.

But what you're describing is the way that the prius and other popular models do it. What I was trying to say, is that instead of using a smaller motor, you could use the battery power in addition to the regular gas motor when you take off. In the prius, the gas motor doesn't kick in until you have started moving, but what if you ran both the gas and off the battery power at the same time? Then you'd have more overall horespower.

They were talking about doing this on at least one vehicle (probably a chevy or ford suv) and it wouldn't get better mileage, but just have more power.
