Lots of blog posts on interviewing recently….hmm, could be a sign of changes in the employment marketplace. Anyway, if someone does a good job of offering advice or insight, it keeps me from having to be charming with a post of my own. Better to just link, I think.
Tod Hilton blogs some nice Microsoft interview advice. Posts I’ve seen from other bloggers have been pretty tech-centric, but Tod’s advice hits the mark across the board. Only caveat for marketers: typical attire in marketing groups is less casual. While I don’t focus on technical hires, thought I should mention that Tod’s team is hiring for Developers/Testers.
Here’s another one that I like to call “No lunch and one sweaty interviewer later“. I’m just saying! Hopefully all their interviews aren’t like this but it seems there are some deeper issues. Hey, I didn’t write it, I just link to it, my friends (via Shannon).
Speaking of hiring for passion (and awkward topic transitions), Seth talks about his recent experience with one very passionate employee. How much passion is too much? I know it when I see it. I suspect that Seth’s been thinking about hiring because he’s speaking at the upcoming ERE conference. Dude, I am so there.
