On Monday, I'll be helping my company interview a new Project Engineer candidate, specifically to determine their SolidWorks skills. I doubt I'll have more than 30 minutes with the candidate, so what should my game plan be? Do I give him a drawing and tell him to model the part, or give him a part and ask for the drawing? Or do I find an object around the office and a pair of calipers and tell him to go nuts?
What's the best way to test for proficiency in the shortest amount of time, and what have you had success (or failure) with?
