A Technical Hiring Reference for Software Engineering Jobs
*The exact success of the professional discussion between hiring team and applicant depends on various parameters:
From ‘hiring team’ side: job title, responsibility, department, project type, technology type, skills type, years of experience, mind set of interviewer/interviewers, immediate requirements, firm decision for hire-nohire, relative experience with many candidates and many more.
From candidate side: the way CV (resume) was presented, the way the candidate carried the technical/non-technical discussion, Job Title, Past Experience, thought process, technical thoughts presentation/participation and many more .
*The concept of hiringlibrary.com is not to provide set of questions for hiring team and applicants. However Its Objective to provide a reference so that applicant look more seriously on his CV(resume) and prepare his own set of Q/A by following a single reference. On the same side, Hiring Team follow a reference to prepare customized set of discussion points which is aligned with his set of requirements.
*No Hiring team will discuss with you which have n’t presented on your Resume, Your resume is only the point of Discussion e.g. If you are a C++ Developer on Unix then you just expect discussion around C++ and Unix. So for an applicant, prepare your resume.
*Many Interviewers starts from the ‘ Please tell me about yourself’, Or ‘tell me the most interesting project you worked on’ to start the discussion, and that usually depends on applicant that how he align his offering with the hiring team’s needs.
*Most of the interview sessions used to be 30 minutes to 60 minutes, Long. It’s an interviewer and applicant responsibility to get the discussion going with energy.
*The best thing that applicant need to read his profiles 10 times, and given job descriptions, and then he should prepare the list of self-questionnaire, applicant should prepare fine-grained responses of the self-questionnaire e.g. What are my skills ?, Who am I ?, My accomplishments since last years, What I really need ?, How good I am in XYZ skills ?, What is my behaviour within the team ?, In which team or company I would be happy ? and many more. As 95% applicants are not prepared for the self-defined answers, as they have not given any thoughts on it and not done any relevant research.
*Startups hiring entirely different than multinational companies hiring. As most of the startup only believe in work, they would like to see the work samples of yours, and they will give you a technical software development task to evaluate your skills.
*HiringLibrary.com not intended to provide just a set of questions and nowhere mentioning to mug up the given answers. It’s an online book, you have to do practice, practice and practice. It’s just a guidance for those, who are new to hiring area or new in the job search area or after a long time coming back to job search or would like to hire talents.
