SQLAuthority News - Good Motivational Quotes for Interviews motivationalquote

I like to do an interview when the other person isn’t expecting it. I find it’s more spontaneous. -Gregory Hines

One of the most important things, especially when you’re leaving school, is to realize you’re going to be dealing with a lot of idiots. And a lot of those idiots are in charge of things, so if you’re in an interview and you really want to tell the person off, don’t do it. -Lewis Black

A good engineering interview will include some set of difficult problems to solve. It might even require that the candidate write a short program. In addition, it will test the candidate’s knowledge of the tools she uses in great depth. -Ben Horowitz

Everything has changed. An interview has become such a confrontational thing. It makes you very defensive. -Francesca Annis

I walk on a stage, and I know if it’s been a good show or not. You know when it’s been a good interview. No one has to tell you. You know it. You feel it. You can feel the air. You can feel everything about it when it’s a good show. And you know when you’ve messed up. -Joan Rivers

I was completely unqualified to get into Harvard. But then I went to my interview for Harvard, and the woman asked, ‘Why do you want to go here?’ And I took out all of my comedy writing samples that I had done. I couldn’t have been more delusional in terms of what I thought they wanted in a candidate for college. -Mike Birbiglia

With every interview you feel like you lose a piece of yourself, and with every bad review you become just that little bit more bitter. It is horrible in a way. -Jane March

One of the hopes we have when we hear or read an interview with a mystery writer is to get inside the writer’s head, to learn something we didn’t know before. -Otto Penzler

  • I’m glad to see this person got a job, but I wonder how much of an asset they will be in their new role based on their needing to “memorize them very well” – regarding your Q&A. I see that all too often, someone that can memorize, but cannot create, or design, or act with initiative on that memory.

    To Pinal,

    You have changed my life as well. I read your questions and got the job, today I am Jr. Manager in less than one year in MNC based in Pune.

    To Jason,
    It is not true, Pinal’s questions and answers are very well explained and teaches everybody in great detail. I think just reading them one learns so much that interview is just piece of cake.

  • Here is the full command,

    DBCC SQLPERF (LOGSPACE) WITH NO_INFOMSGS

    Pls. run this in Query Analyzer and see the output yourself – its straight forward & simple. In 2005 they have added some more options, pls. try them as well, of course NOT on production system.

    Before asking any questions pls. refer to Book Online.
