One of the team members pointed out yesterday that it's exactly a year since I made this obnoxious post about how difficult it is to find good people.
That post was made after about two months of trying to find two temp employees, if I remember correctly, and I was somewhat frustrated 🙂
Anyway, the interesting thing about that post is that it worked! The employee who pointed out the age of the post(Jason) was one of the few who responded to it, and has been working here for 7 months now. He actually got offers from two teams at MS when he came to interview, but the pub-crawling skills of my boss managed to convince him to go with us. Sucker.
Normally it takes alot more effort than that to find good people, so I highly recommend trying something like this.
