How to Hire a Software Engineer (Online Class)

Tuesday, February 4th  5:00 - 5:30 pm EST

Sloane Barbour, Regional Director, Jobspring Partners and Workbridge Associates


The hiring market for software engineers is incredibly competitive. Companies are competing not only with each other, but also with the opportunity cost of a talented engineer taking a job instead of starting a company.


In this class, we will breakdown the problem of sourcing, identifying, screening, interviewing, closing, and hiring talented engineers. We will start with specific tactics that you can implement right away to increase your inbound candidate flow, discuss ways to engage and build a talent community, and finish by exploring the hiring road map to make sure your hiring process is efficient, effective, on budget, and on time.


This class is designed for anyone who is currently hiring a developer or will need to hire a developer in the near future. It is relevant for companies/teams of any size.


Takeaways:

  • Understand the difference between passive recruiting and active recruiting, and how to maximize the effectiveness of both.

  • Identify who should be involved in the hiring process, and what an ideal interview process is.

  • Evaluate best practices for closing, hiring, and onboarding a new candidate.


Prerequisites:

None.


Preparation:

A written job description, or identifying an immediate need that needs to be filled.
