    My rule for short, successful interviews is this. Walk in and yell:

    "I'm an expert computer programmer with mad skills! Hire me and every day will be sunny!"

    Experts are always good, being a computer programmer means that you're sure to be able to work the cash register, and who doesn't like sunny days?
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Do you do a dance after that? I'm thinking something like Napoleon Dynamite.

    >>and who doesn't like sunny days?
    Those unfortunate people who are allergic to sunlight, and have to stay indoors all day?

    I love how threads end with conversations between members with 10+ green squares.

    Now I need to know how to get promoted. Any tips?
    Hmm

    That's not the problem.

    It's whether or not the boss is.

    I vomited in an interview once.

    Can't say I'd recommend it.

    Were you sick, or did you really get that nervous? Honestly, I've never been all that nervous in interviews. It's helped me out a lot, I think.

    Fresh Prince of Belaire reference. Will was asking his college advisor to drop a class and the advisor told him to make it one of his demands when he climbs the belltower since add/drop was over... ahh, never mind. *goes away*
