[Mạn phép chủ nhân blog viết tiếp loạt bài về “Câu hỏi phỏng vấn” 😀 ]
Về các câu hỏi phỏng vấn độc chiêu và trí tuệ thì chắc không công ty nào bằng Microsoft và Google. Microsoft thì blog này đã nói nhiều rồi, ở bài này tôi xin giới thiệu một bộ test của Google: Google Labs Aptitude Test (GLAT). Một điều hay ho là bạn không cần phải đến đại bản doanh của Google để làm test mà chỉ cần tải nó về, làm và gửi đến Google Labs. Và theo như Google thì “Score high enough and we’ll be in touch”. Ở đây có ai muốn làm cho Google không nhỉ 😀 ?

Thú thật là những câu hỏi này làm tôi “khó chịu” và thú vị hơn so với của Microsoft. Bác nào bí thì có thể tham khảo câu trả lời ở đây hay đây.
