$work has been advertising for a new testing position and i've been doing the role of assessment of technical skills of the prospective employees.
i've been a bit surprised when interviewees reach into their bag, pull out a folder of paper and offer to show me documents from their previous/current job.
Part of me wants to enquire "So, how do you think your previous/current employer feels about you showing their internal policies and procedures to external parties, and are you going to show us the same courtesy if/when you leave us?"
I can't quite figure out how to say that without it sounding like "you've got 10 seconds to leave the building before i call the cops you thieving $#@&!!!!!"
The other part of me is thinkin' "Maybe this is just me being paranoid/super-sensitive/dumb about trade secrets, and i should just get over myself"
Which certainly seems the case when i consult my co-workers.... i dunno, it just seems odd to me.
