    Any tips on conducting an interview?

    My company is recruiting another web developer (php/mysql) and it's down to me to head up the interview - as I'm the only developer here.

    Any tips on making sure that the person I get isn't a lemon? Add to this that my boss doesn't want to spend a lot and we'll probably get a recent graduate (yes I know you get what you pay for...)

    Do you think there's any benefit to a very short written test, like troubleshooting syntax errors and writing simple queries?

    A series about hiring a new employee in video:
    http://www.ehow.com/video_2200637_co...iring-new.html

    And some questions:
    PHP: http://dev.fyicenter.com/Interview-Q...PHP/index.html
    MySQL: http://dba.fyicenter.com/interview/MySQL.html

    I don't have any personal tips because I have no experience in hiring a new employee.
    Do you really need traffic? Where to? What for?
    If you really do need traffic then stop messing around!
