To my surprise I encountered the rudest interviewer yesterday from Juniper. He asked me how a technology term appears in my resume, that was mentioned to be "knowing thoroughly" in the job description. While I was trying to explain the technology in detail he suddenly stops me and tells me "looks like you are not fit for my team". I had explained to him this is a technology I am interested in, read it up and did some configuration on it and know the concepts. Then he drops the call without asking any other question. Please people document such cases, if an interviewer is having a bad day it is perfectly okay to reschedule the interview to a different day since they have the upper hand anyway, but it is very unpolite to be rude over the phone as an interviewer. I have been an interviewer and never have been such rude. Let us not encourage such culture in the valley.

Hi - I appreciate your comments. I'll be graduating from college with a degree in IT soon. I'd like to work there in Sunnyvale. But, I'm not sure where to begin. Can you point me in the right direction for new grads? Thanks!
