Yes, I totally agree. Too many people go into interviews with the wrong
mindset. Nearly every time I've gone in to an interview with the mindset
that "I'm going to control the pace and flow of the interview," I got the
job or contract. I think maybe such an attitude comes with a certain sense
of maturity and comfort with your knowledge base, skill set, and
experience...not to mention problem-solving ability.

And you're right about the interviewers. People in startups have to
wear so many hats that they can't do it all well, which is why you get the
CFO interviewing the technical writer my stint with an
eCommerce startup, I interviewed with the lead Java developer, the systems
admin, and the director of SW development. Quite a variety of interview
questions...and a few even touched on the topic of technical communications!
