Search - "i feel like an absolute idiot"
Last week I had an initial interview for a mid-senior C# position, and I got asked to do a technical test to check on my actual skills.
The problem is that the skills required to meet all the criteria in said test are far beyond my actual knowledge, so I'm 100% sure I'm going to fail the test.
Now, the question is, should I be honest with the person that's going to review whatever I manage to do, and tell them upfront that I've never done this or that? Should I even try to do it on the test, even if it's the first time I try to do some of the points mentioned on the criteria?
It's the first time this happens to me, and I'm tempted to just tell them I don't feel capable of completing it, and leave it there.10
