    Hi.

    I work freelance so I do loads of interviews. I would estimate that about 90% of questions I'm asked relate to performance tuning and version upgrades. These are the things that people seem most afraid of so they tend to ask lots of questions. Depending on who's interviewing you questions about backup and recovery are popular. I suppose it depends on the type of work you are looking for.

    Most of the time the interviewer knows far less than you so keep cool and look confident.

    Good luck.

    Hi.

    I'm only saying what I see. I just do what I'm told and answer the questions I'm asked

    If people are scared to upgrade their DBs I'll gladly do it. Easy money!

    Cheers

    One thing that is quite common in the city I live in is demonstrated expertise during the interview.

    Example: You may be asked to create a new user and assign them specific privileges or change a columns data type that contains data.

    Before you go on the interview you should try and obtain some information on the interview process the company uses.

    Gee,
