F*** You, I Quit — Hiring Is Broken
Sahat Yalkabov

I completely agree with your gripe on feedback. I have been responsible for the technical interview part (which involves pair programming on some code) and having been on the receiving end of the interview process I make it a point to:

  • State exactly what kind of things I’m looking for and reinforce it during the interview if the person goes off track
  • If they are rejected based on their performance will list why they are not going forward (and which things were good) and how to improve

The last bit causes a huge range of reactions. Some have no previous interview experience and are either devastated (they are learning about rejection by a professional) or delighted (eager to absorb advice). So I’m not sure this is universally appreciated.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
