ASP.NET Interview Questions For New College Graduates


I’m not the first to write on this topic and probably won’t be the last.  But I do have something to say on the matter that I think is helpful.

In fact, there has been quite a bit written about interviewing for ASP.NET, but relatively little written about how to interview, and what to look for, in a student who just recently graduated from college.

So here is my list.

Several of the projects I’m involved with use the Google Search Appliance for their search engine.  For each of these projects, we’ve wanted to integrate the results on an ASPX page so that the results look like they are part of the site rather than taking them to another site to display the results.  This is achieved by using the XML Control, the Google XSLT file, and some good old-fashioned search and replace.

It has been a while since I’ve actually worked on this code.  Mostly we just copy, paste, and modify from one project to another, but I hope to give you enough here to at least get you started doing this yourself, if not everything you need.
