Hiring is not hazing

Tech hiring has a bad reputation for a reason – it’s usually awful. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

You’ll learn ways to effectively assess technical ability, what makes a great interview question, how to be more inclusive, the pros and cons of giving homework assignments, and much more.

You’ll leave with ideas to improve your interviews, and ways to influence your company to change its hiring practices.
