interviewer tip

The best way I've found to interview candidate developers is to pair program with them to do real work on the actual code of the project that is hiring. If not possible, give programming exercise which is:

The exercise must involve working with current development tools.
The exercise must require the candidate to apply important features of the language.
The exercise must involve understanding and working with existing code.
The exercise must involve error handling.
The exercise must involve testing.
The exercise must offer scope for domain modelling.
The exercise must involve asking questions.
The exercise must be realistic.
The exercise must involve changing requirements.
The exercise must offer the candidate enough rope to hang themselves.
The exercise must test many different skills and practices.

Fire quick is not suitable -

Someone code good may not fit in -

1) Define your value in advance of the interview. What actions did I take that affected the project? How do I describe the details of those actions in a way that helps articulate the value of how I worked?
2) Create these stories by asking yourself several questions. See if you can relate the answers to cost, schedule, or customer experience. Why? Because that’s what management cares about.
3) Never lie. Never. Never.
4) Use this value to create the stories of how you worked.
5) In the interview, answer every question as if it is a behavior-description question.
6) Do not assume the interviewer knows what you mean. Especially explain your project management approach.[..]program-manager-interview-questions.html

IT employment

Another post, say something lead to a successful story -[..]ly-control-your-technical-interview.html

A nice comment about IT employment:

Because the company cannot show absolute loyalty to the employees, I don't
want or expect absolute loyalty from employees to the company. In fact, when
I see an employee with a strong sense of loyalty, it worries me, because I
know that I may not be able to return the sentiment.

Obviously I expect honesty and fairness. But when it comes to the issue of
whether the employee stays or goes somewhere else, I don't expect loyalty to
be the deciding factor. It is my job to make sure the employees are happy
with their compensation and work environment. If they find a better
situation, I expect them to do what is best for them and their family. I
simply need to be sure that they cannot find a better situation.

That puts a lot of responsibility on the company, especially with the way we
do software development here. We ask our developers to do a lot of things
they don't necessarily enjoy. We expect them to help customers with the
tougher problems. We expect them to help with testing. We expect them to be
willing to use any and all of their skills to help make our products
successful. For a programmer who wants to do nothing but write code,
SourceGear is not the ideal work environment.

So we have to take the challenge of retention seriously. I'm pretty sure
nobody in our area pays better than we do. Everybody gets their own private
office. We eat lunch together every Wednesday at the company's expense. We
have a pool table and a basketball hoop.[..]DiscussTopicParent=8037&ixDiscussGroup=5
