I have 34 years of IT experience and has been retrenched a few months ago. As you can imagine it is hard to find new employment at my age. I mostly worked in a development environment, but lately only did Account Management. I spent a short time doing maintenance on a system, which confirmed that programming is basically like riding a bike. You never lose that skills. I have been invited for an interview for a position as team leader. Although I know the development tools well, I have not been part of the later methodologies as far as SDLC is concerned. Used to do a Requirements spec, Functional spec, Technical Spec and the development, testing, user documentation and maintenance afterwards. I have been reading quite a bit about the technologies and my assumption is that it does not really differ from what I am used to do. Am I right in that regard? Also, I think my response to questions during the interview will be to focus on what the company is currently using as a methodology and base my answers on the fact that I need to first have to analyse what they are doing and adapt myself to that. Any suggestions?
