It is not very hard to conclude what my stance is on whiteboard interviews from the title of this post. However, I think my position deserves an explanation because it’s not nearly as simple as a personal dislike. There is a right and a wrong way to conduct any interview. Whether it involves a whiteboard or does not. To me the issue is two-pronged: lack of human connection in the process and initially a failure of the education system to properly prepare us for the real world.
