The Best Interview

The best interview is the kind where they basically ask you 2 questions:

What do you want to know about the position? and
When can you start?

This happens rarely. Only if you know someone and have been recommended or recruited for the job. They want you to work there. They are just hoping that you will consider working for them.

This is the reverse of what usually happens for a job seeker. Many job seekers are just looking for "anything," for anyone who will hire them at a decent rate. The interviewer has the advantage in that case.

I guess networking can give the job seeker the advantage.
