Did you know that dealing with a single problem employee can consume as much as 50% of his or her manager’s time? Imagine how that impacts the manager’s effectiveness! This is why making smart hiring decisions is one of the most important and central roles for test leads and test managers. However, it’s also one of the hardest roles we face. In this presentation, Rex Black, having hired dozens of testers and coached managers around the world on how to improve their hiring practices, will share some of the techniques you can use to ensure that your next hiring decision is the best one you’ve made—so far. You should bring your resume for this unique, hands-on double session, where you’ll have an opportunity to practice interview techniques with another attendee as they are introduced, and then discuss the results with other participants.
