Hiring The Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets & Science Of Hiring Technical People (Paperback)
by Johanna Rothman (Author) 1.Book Reviews Review “. . . practical, pragmatic advice on finding and hiring the right person.” — Esther Derby, President, Esther Derby Associates, Inc. “This clear and comprehensive book joins Peopleware and The Mythical Man Month as must-reads for technical managers.” — Joel Spolsky, Founder, Fog Creek Software “a humane, yet tough-minded approach to hiring. Any technical manager who wants to hire well will be thankful for it.” — James Bach, CEO, Satisfice, Inc.
Book Description Good technical people are the foundation on which successful high technology organizations are built. Establishing a good process for hiring such workers is essential. Unfortunately, the generic methods so often used for hiring skill-based staff, who can apply standardized methods to almost any situation, are of little use to those charged with the task of hiring technical people. Unlike skill-based workers, technical people typically do not have access to cookie-cutter solutions to their problems. They need to adapt to any situation that arises, using their knowledge in new and creative ways to solve the problem at hand. As a result, one developer, tester, or technical manager is not interchangeable with another. This makes hiring technical people one of the most critical and difficult processes a technical manager can undertake. Hiring the Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets & Science of Hiring Technical People takes the guesswork out of hiring and diminishes the risk of costly hiring mistakes. With the aid of step-by-step descriptions and detailed examples, you’ll learn how to * write a concise, targeted job description * source candidates * develop ads for mixed media * review résumés quickly to determine Yes, No, or Maybe candidates * develop intelligent, nondiscriminatory, interview techniques * create fool-proof phone-screens * check references with a view to reading between the lines * extend an offer that will attract a win-win acceptance or tender a gentle-but-decisive rejection * and more You, your team, and your organization will live with the long-term consequences of your hiring decision. Investing time in developing a hiring strategy will shorten your decision time and the ramp-up time needed for each new hire.
