Given a 30-45 minutes to select a new colleague, what do you ask? What can you determine in your time slot? How can you decide that this candidate is truly qualified? (Is it your fault if they don't work out?) This webcast answers those questions and more.

Targeted toward managers and engineers looking to hire for technical positions, it will also be useful to job seekers who want to understand what is happening on the other side of the table.

  • 1. I will immediately tender my resignation if you offer this person a job. 2. Extremely weak candidate. This person is likely to be a long-term drain on resources, and may well never make the transition to being a net positive contributor. 3. Weak candidate. Initially, this candidate will be a net loss, requiring training, mentoring, constant guidance and close supervision. They may grow in time, and become a net contributor, but it is not clear when (or if) this will occur. 4. Mediocre candidate: This person demonstrated some obvious deficiencies in the course of the interview, although they were not a complete train wreck. 5. Fair candidate: This person showed no particular brilliance, but no glaring deficiencies either. They will require support and assistance, but it is reasonable to expect that they will become a useful if uninspired contributor in time. 6. Reasonable candidate: This person seems like they may become a valuable team member, after some start-up delay. 7. Strong candidate: This person is likely to become a valuable member of the team fairly quickly. 8. This is an extremely strong candidate. While not a rock star, they have an impressive breadth and depth of knowledge, and will come up to speed very quickly. Unless there is a rock star candidate in the line-up, we should very strongly consider making this person an offer. 9. This person is a rock star. They will make an immediate and valuable contribution to the company, and we are unlikely to find a better fit for this job than this candidate. 10. I will immediately tender my resignation if you do not offer this person a job. (Taken from Phil King at http://weekendengineering.blogspot.com/.)Elecia White Logical Elegance 22
