Given a 30-45 minutes to select a new colleague, what do you ask? What can you determine in your time slot? How can you decide that this candidate is truly qualified? (Is it your fault if they don't work out?) This webcast answers those questions and more.
Targeted toward managers and engineers looking to hire for technical positions, it will also be useful to job seekers who want to understand what is happening on the other side of the table.
