I am working on a brand new edition of what used to be Hiring the Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets and Science of Hiring Technical People. I will be publishing this revision electronically first on leanpub.
I have streamlined the language. I have added much more cultural fit material. I have added more about auditions. I have much more about networking with LinkedIn and Twitter. I have titled the sidebars. I think I’ve made the book easier to read. I’ve improved the templates. Even with the additions I have reduced the size of the book almost 20%.
For a variety of reasons, I have to change the title. I cannot use the current title and picture currently in the blog sidebar. So I thought I would ask for help.
Here are some current candidate titles:
Hiring the Best Technical People: A Pragmatic Guide
Match Cultural Fit and Attitude: Hire the Best Technical People
It’s All About Culture: Hiring the Best Technical People
Baiting the Geek Trap: Hiring the Best Technical People
Finding and Hiring the Best Technical People: A Practical Guide
Big Geek Hunting: Hiring the Best Technical People
Hiring the Best Technical People: A Pragmatic Approach to Match Cultural Fit
Help! What do you think? Do you have better suggestions? As soon as I determine the title, my designer is ready to design a cover and I can hit publish.
If you are interested in the book, please do sign up at the book’s page on leanpub.
