Ouch I just got off of a bad phone interview. They said there will be a couple technical questions. The first one was so broad that I didn't know how to tackle it: "Assume I'm not technical. Describe data structures." I stumbled through a long-winded explanation and landed at "a way to efficiently store and retrieve information based on what is known and what is to be retrieved."
It took me a couple minutes to get there, and then I got the next question: "Describe algorithms." Really have no clue how to answer something that general so I basically ended up saying the same thing.
Anyway, anyone hiring?
