On the same page: Our Hiring Training

21 prosince 2021
If there’s one thing all recruiters and hiring managers will agree on it’s the importance of being on the same page. It’s incredibly frustrating, messy, and time-consuming not being in sync with each other around best hiring practices. Naturally, the more people involved in the hiring process, the more diverse the opinions are about how to do it. To make this a much easier process we have designed new hiring training. Since our R&D department is manager-less, all of our engineers are involved with the hiring process. Making the challenge of ‘being in sync’ quite an ambitious goal. The training feedback has been really positive, so it’s now time for us to share what we created with you. You can use this information as inspiration, or as a foundation for building your own training.
