Interviewing a Technical Candidate
I've become involved in the interview process at my company. It's been fun to learn the general guidelines we've setup for each other, but on thing I've learned is that interviewing is hard. It frustrates me how little I seem to know about a candidate after an entire hour of time with him and although we have four employees interview each candidate, I'm not confident the sum of parts is a complete picture.
I've tried to be proactive learning more about technical interviews. Time management is especially important. Having only an hour with the candidate I've found some questions can eat up a lot of time without telling me much about the programmer's coding ability or their fit on the team.
