Dorset House has announced the pre-publication availability of my book, “Hiring Technical People.” Here's the blurb:
Hiring technical people is one of the most critical and difficult tasks that a manager can undertake. This book 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 job description * source candidates * develop ads * review resumes * develop interview techniques * create phone screens * check references * extend an offer * and more.
Esther Derby, one of my reviewers, said on her blog, “This is the book I wish I'd had when I was hiring people. ”
Me too. That's why I wrote the book. When the book is generally available, I'll announce that too.
