Crosspost: The Recompiler Magazine, Issue 8: Build Your Interviewing Strategy

I’m a huge fan of The Recompiler, and not just because they sometimes publish my work. I support anyone who spends the time and effort to publish articles that are useful, thoughtful, and frequently action-oriented.

Carol Smith (of OSI board fame) and I put together a workshop for people who are doing technical interviews for the first time. We called it “The Hardest Part of Tech(nical Interviewing) Is People”. We’ve given it a couple times, and we’re hoping to do a recorded version. This article is part of what we talk about in the workshop – how to look over your past experiences, even if they weren’t in technology, and make them relevant and applicable. We hope this helps you!

Build Your Interviewing Strategy

And in conclusion, support your local publications!
