I agree; the last thing I would want to do is help someone "trick" an
interviewer into hiring them for a job they're not qualified for. But I don't
think that's what we're trying to do. Sometimes you don't get the job that
suits you simply because you're not very good at interviewing (after all, most
of us have more experience working than being interviewed).
