I’ve been in email contact with Pradeep Soundararajan for a few months now. He was recently at a conference in Toronto, and has posted his The (bad) state of software testing interviews in India, which includes a pdf of a talk he gave about interviewing. He has several wonderful ideas, including:
- Candidate and interview myths
- Frequently asked (horrible) questions
- Today’s candidates are tomorrow’s interviewers
- Organizations suffer with bad resources because they don’t know how to ask for good resources.
I wish I’d been there. I bet this was a great talk! I don’t think Pradeep had heard of my book until that conference, so he did buy one while he was there. I’m sure we will keep up our email conversation.
