Technical Interviewing - You're Doing it Wrong

Technical interviewing and hiring an agile team can be a challenge. In this video, recorded in January, 2013, Mitch Lacey & Jonathan Wanagel from Microsoft discuss anti-patterns that can lead to corporate dysfunction.


How do you know if you are good at technical interviewing? The feedback loop for interviewers is too long and incomplete to allow people to see their mistakes and improve themselves, instead just copying the same practices they've seen from others before them. Consequently, most people in the industry are following many bad practices. Find out what you are doing wrong so you can hire better people faster, with fewer candidates declining your offers.
