Give That Man A Job

One of the hot blog posts doing the rounds at the moment is One of the toughest job-interview questions ever where a candidate is asked:

"Explain how you would develop a frequency-sorted list of the ten thousand most-used words in the English language."

His answers might not be the best way to get the interviewer on your side but I like the way he doesn't jump into a techy discussion but tries to nail down the spec and reveals the problem isn't as straightforward as the interviewer would like.

Replace the word 'develop' with 'test' in the question and there you have a great interview questions for testers.
