“Where do we find great people?” It sounds like a simple question, but it means a whole bunch more.

How do we hire great people? What goes in a good job description? How do you review résumés? Should we have pre-tests? What about trick questions? Who should interview and for how long and what kind of interview is it and, oh my gosh, how do we even interview people properly? What should we evaluate candidates against? How do we know they will fit? What if we make a bad hire? How much time will it take? How do we help new team members succeed?


Hiring isn’t harder than coding, but it’s a lot more complicated than picking where to have lunch. Come to this interactive presentation to learn about a hiring process that was part of building a world-class team. Along the way we will talk about all the elements, how they fit together, what might be changed, and how you can apply these steps to your organization.

If you are ready to answer these questions and find the very best for your team (whether technical or not), attend *Hunting for Diamonds!*
