You've got this, anon!When it comes to information you don't know, the best answer I've come across in cases like that is to admit what you don't know, then immediately explain how/where you would seek out that information. e.g. Your search methods, flipping it around to ask them about internal documentation, etc.
Okay, that makes sense. In past interviews, when faced with a question I don't know the answer to, I have to spit out related things that I know rather than admitting that I don't know. I have tried to "show how I would think about it," but when it is a question that I really have no idea on, it seems like it does make more sense to talk about how I would seek out the information, probably comes across less forged. Thanks so much for the encouragement! question
