were-and you can learn far more from “body language” than you ever thought possible.

Hiring The Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds:

The Secrets & Science Of Hiring Technical People
by Johanna Rothman (Author)

1.Book Reviews


“. . . practical, pragmatic advice on finding and hiring the right person.” — Esther Derby,
President, Esther Derby Associates, Inc.

“This clear and comprehensive book joins Peopleware and The Mythical Man Month as
must-reads for technical managers.” — Joel Spolsky, Founder, Fog Creek Software

“a humane, yet tough-minded approach to hiring. Any technical manager who wants to
hire well will be thankful for it.” — James Bach, CEO, Satisfice, Inc.
Book Description

Good technical people are the foundation on which successful high technology
organizations are built. Establishing a good process for hiring such workers is essential.
Unfortunately, the generic methods so often used for hiring skill-based staff, who can
apply standardized methods to almost any situation, are of little use to those charged with
the task of hiring technical people.
Unlike skill-based workers, technical people typically do not have access to cookie-cutter
solutions to their problems. They need to adapt to any situation that arises, using their
knowledge in new and creative ways to solve the problem at hand. As a result, one
developer, tester, or technical manager is not interchangeable with another. This makes
hiring technical people one of the most critical and difficult processes a technical
manager can undertake.
Hiring the Best Knowledge Workers, Techies & Nerds: The Secrets & Science of Hiring
Technical People takes the guesswork out of hiring and diminishes the risk of costly
hiring mistakes. With the aid of step-by-step descriptions and detailed examples, you’ll
learn how to
* write a concise, targeted job description
* source candidates
* develop ads for mixed media
* review résumés quickly to determine Yes, No, or Maybe candidates
* develop intelligent, nondiscriminatory, interview techniques
* create fool-proof phone-screens
* check references with a view to reading between the lines
* extend an offer that will attract a win-win acceptance or tender a gentle-but-decisive
* and more
You, your team, and your organization will live with the long-term consequences of your
hiring decision. Investing time in developing a hiring strategy will shorten your decision
time and the ramp-up time needed for each new hire.
