Do you read Rob Lambert's Social Tester? He's been blogging about his experiences finding candidates.
Some of my favorites:
Here is a quote from that post:
You cannot presume someone with a certification is a talented tester.
You also cannot presume someone with no certification is a rubbish tester.
I had missed his review of Hiring Geeks That Fit. Here is his review: Geeks Hiring Geeks.
Things he likes:
- The way the book looks at recruiting
- The templates
- The stories
He also recommends the book for job seekers. Thanks, Rob!
