Interviewing people isn’t easy - it’s like combining performance reviews, A-Levels, and The Bachelor into an awkward couple of hours. Eek. And it only gets harder as an interviewer when you’re out of your comfort zone, or have received little to no training. You’re left to wonder, did I make the right decision? Ask the right questions? How was the experience for the interviewee?
But what if you were able to apply your technical mind, endless curiosity, and analytical thinking to engineer yourself into a better interviewer? You can!
Whether you’ve interviewed dozens of people, or you’ve only ever been on the other side of the table, Heather will help you become a more compassionate, effective, and confident interviewer. You’ll learn how unconscious bias is just Big O complexity, how to analyze job requirements like acceptance criteria, how to unit test your interview questions, and more.
