I am interviewing for a network engineering position. They like me and my knowledge base. However, I have never worked with the actual model of equipment they use. I have experience with similar products and I am a very quick learner. They would like me to come in for a day to see how I work and how quickly I can pick up things. What is a good way to show them how quickly I learn? [more inside]

In a few days, I'll be interviewing Jamiel Terry
, son of the outspoken evangelical Randall Terry. I don't want it to be simply a rehash of the other interviews from Beliefnet and Washington Post. Any creative questions you think I should ask? Any questions you feel haven't already been answered? Thanks!

Remember this guy
He was one of the drunken frat guys in the Borat movie. He's the only one of the three who decided not to sue.
He got an offer to do a tell-all interview with Rolling Stone, and he's considering it. The two guys suing want him not to talk to the media, and he doesn't want to piss them off. However, he does want his side of the story to be told. He wants to find some way of tactfully not commenting on the lawsuit, aside from saying "I didn't see any benefit in participating in it, so I'm not." He wants to come off as humble and somewhat remorseful, but also letting people know that editing is everything.
Any tips on how he should handle the interview? Should he do it at all?

Could someone point me in the right direction for downloading interviews of famous celebs in something like mp3 format. I have an audio assignment and will be splicing my questions together with someone like Tom Cruise's answers, so I need to find a good resource, be they torrents or google.
Does anyone know of any particular site that hosts these files?

What do I tell prospective employers about my current job situation?
I am not happy at my new job and am looking for a different one. I began my current position only 5 weeks ago, and I realize that it is not a good fit for me. I took the job out of desperation-I was broke and stupidly decided to take the first well-paying thing that offered. What do I say, or not say, to employers that I am now interviewing with? Some background: Just finished my Master's degree and I have never done something like this before.

I have to go on a few job interviews for web producer positions in the UK. I've got a suit, and a collarless black jacket/suit which I quite like and isn't too far off the norm. But I need a good shirt.
What colour shirt should I go for? White? Blue? Lilac? Should it be a "name" shirt eg Boss, Ralph Lauren or will any good quality shirt do?

About one month ago, I had a phone interview for a position at a company based in a Seattle (I live in CA). Though I did not get the job, a mutual fit was evident with the only exception being that I do not have the desired management experience. Next week I will be on vacation in Seattle and I initiated a "casual chat" meeting with my contact at his office. How should I handle the meeting given that his company aligns fairly closely with my "dream employer" scenario? A subtle yet important detail is that... [more inside]
