Parents of children and teachers don't seem to have a problem with paper.

I don't have a problem with paper - I just feel like it would work against a candidate - not because "Oh...they used paper", but because some of the things that I think are signs of a good candidate don't show through.

I've never interviewed a candidate that asked me to use paper, so I can't be sure - it's just my instinct.

It might be completely biased though - I far prefer to use whiteboards - I love the space, I love how easy it is to erase without a trace. I can throw thoughts up there and the manipulate them.

What do you do when your too tall for the whiteboard because some short stubby interviewer placed it lower than normal to accomodate his stubbiness.
