With an ever changing field like High Tech, nobody expects a job candidate to know everything. Even within the compound of one position, so many required skills are listed that honestly very few candidates can have them all. Programming interviews are focus on one main thing : data structures and algorithms. Even if the company is looking for a programmer in C#, he will be wiling to hire someone with good skills in Java. The candidate can solve interview using Python language if he wants. It’s all boiled down to if you know how to solve problems using programming. Obviously, if it’s a short term contract where the programmer must get dirty right away and deliver, he will need to know to exact technology he will be working with. However, in system administration for example, you can face questions in many areas.
