Nick Halstead's Blog:
Interviewing programmers 101 - Part 2
May 22, 2007 @ 10:13:00

Nick Halstead is back with part two of his look at how to interview some of the core people in any kind of web-related business - the programmers.

In my first article I covered the actual interview process. In this next part I now take a step back and look at how you find the most talented programmers when you have hundreds of CV's and you don't want to interview them all.

One of the keys to this part of the process is testing the developers that come to you looking for a position. He suggests sorting through the resumes that come in and find those that you think would be a best fit.

From there, you work up a testing procedure to help narrow them down even further. The two types he mentions are the online testing options and the creation of a custom test in-house that can be emailed to the developer for them to complete. The last option is to create your own testing system, a full test that combine aspects from both of the above.
