Interestingly, the use of a technical test in interviews can
actually work both ways. In my recent hunt for a new job I
automatically turned down any vacancy where I was *not* given a
technical test. My reasoning behind that is that I know *I* can
program, but do I want to work with *other* programmers who haven’t
The harder the test I was given, the more excited I was about the vacancy.
If anyone out there is looking for a new job I urge you to bear that in mind.

I found this in the user comment on coding horror. Just something to take note off. Lately a lot of ppl have been asking me where should they look to work. I found this as good advice. I don’t know who the author James is… as there was no link… the name is included here just so that one day I might find out.
