I had a job interview for an IT developer position. It is not a manager role and probably a one man band position. I was graduated from a not very high ranking univerisity with 6 years working experience on IT field.
When I sit down, the first question the lady asked is "It is known that your university graduates are rubbish. Do you agree?" I was shocked but I am not angry. When I was thinking how to respond she start on next topic and end up we have chatted for 30 minutes.
She is well-aware of my education background before arrange an interview. The position is not going to handle any customer complaints so she don't need to challenge me for self-control.
I would like to understand what she is trying to get out from the question. So that I can act better next time. Could you share your view as interviewer or interviewee?
