Subject: CCIE True Interview Story

Not true Dinesh. The whole idea of putting the post is not to embarass
and I was very considerate in the level and toughness of question I
asked. His
name is not even Ali and I am not gloating over anyone.
I once read a famous quote online when preparing for my CCIE, that at
timeB the people who had passed did not know what IP was. I was one of
people, so I am not in a position to gloat,B because I know where my
came from. Without God I cannot do anything. Now I am not trying to get
into a
religious arguement, just sharing my faith.
There are some people in this forum thinking right now thatB these
were unfair to a CCIE,B that theB candidate wasB nervous, or did he
cheat to
pass his exam? Some thinking it is picking on the negative side, that
interviewer did not like the candidate..etc
This is an open forum, anyone can share opinions. It makes for an
Dear Nki,

It seems clear that you where unable to interview at CCIE level.
someone who has just passed CCIE knows routing and switching. If you
interview someone try to understand that they may be nervous and not
able to
express themselves under the stress. A good interviewer would simply try
find the best in the person and focus on what they know. Not delve on a
candidates negative side and then gloat on the ccie forum where people
trying their best to pass. My guess you just didn't like the guy and
subconsciously looking for a reason not to employ him.
