WHAT DO DEVELOPERS REALLY THINK ABOUT INTERVIEWING?

 

Part Three of our mini series 'From the Developers POV' will examine the next stage in the hiring process - the interview.

- What do developers think about interviews?
- What style of interview works best?
- Biographical or behavioural?
- Or should it all be technical interviewing?
- How accessible are interviews for the neuro diversity?

Brainfood Live On Air -Ep90 - From the Developers POV Part Two - Technical Assessments

December 18, 2020

What do developers really think about that coding challenge that recruiters send out?

Do they think the tech interview is any better, or perhaps a return the whiteboard exercise?

Assessing the functional capability of any worker is essential but equally important is to make sure that the tool for assessment is the right one for the job. What do developers think about this - is there a way to understand someone's capability before actually working with them?

Part 2 of our 4 part series 'From the Developer's POV' where we take classic recruiting challenges and invite the candidates to tell us what they think about them. 

If you're a tech recruiter you need to listen to this.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep88 - More Robots….Better Experience w/ Sofia Broberger, Patrick Boonstra & Martyn Redstone

December 4, 2020

Increased recruitment automation has been a trend accelerated by the pandemic economy; as recruiters are forced to do more with less, the adoption of tools and processes which can reduce overhead or even eliminate tasks previously conducted by a human being has become a primary concern for CEO, CFO and CPO's alike. 

And yet at the same moment, the requirement for empathy and the higher expectations for candidate care, mean that candidate experience is a parallel priority. 

Can you two demands be met together? Might one actually be key to the other?

This is the topic of this week's Brainfood Live On Air - how to use recruitment automation to improve candidate experience. We're with renowned recruitment automators Sofia Broberger, Martyn Redstone and Patrick Boonstra.

Human Resources. Talent Acquisition. 

The relationship between these two people functions is often critically important, yet also equally often poorly managed. How can we forge better relationships with each other? What does HR really need from TA? What does TA really want from HR? Do they even belong together, under the same organisational structure?

We're going to learn all this and more. by putting HR vs TA together in the same space and talk about how we can build a better relationship.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep86 - Asia-Pac Focus - Recruiting in 2021

November 20, 2020

Over 60%+ of the world's population live in Asia-Pacific region

Yet all the conversation in recruiting & HR is seems centred in the US / UK and Europe. We all talk a good game about diversity, equity and inclusion, but what does that really mean if those ideas and values are consistently created and propagated from the same places, the same cultures, the same peoples?

Brainfood Live is going to strike further out today in this 2 hour special: lets talk about hiring in Asia-Pacific. 

Topics to cover: 

- Covid-19: verdict on Asia-Pac
- Remote hiring ...is it working, for who and where?
- Immigration / Emigration 
- D&I ...how are we talking about this in Asia-Pac
- Routes to candidates: advertising, sourcing, referrals
- Geo-politics - how does the splinternet impact hiring?
- Projections - how does 2021 look for the countries of the region?

We're rounding up the cool cats from Asia Pac, led by Sergei Mahkmodov from Hong Kong, Martin Warren (Grab) & Nina Devouge (The Trade Desk) from Singapore and Matt Best (Best Practice) from Japan

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep85 - How has pandemic changed Employer Branding w/ Dave Hazlehurst

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep85 - How has pandemic changed Employer Branding w/ Dave Hazlehurst

November 13, 2020

How has pandemic changed employer branding? 

Pre-covid, an effective employer branding strategy was critical to winning the 'war on talent' - helping you attract and hire the most in-demand candidates.

And yet, how much of EB was based around the physical location, the perks associated with being in the office, the sell of the amazing company culture (again on premise). 

- What EB rules are more true now than before?

- How important is transparency?

- How important is visible leadership?

- Can you get away with not offering remote / flexible work?

- Is it possible to measure your EB?

All this and more with the amazing Google Dave Hazlehurst.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep84 - Reflections On the Election: w/Tim Sackett & friends

November 6, 2020

We have to talk about it - the US Presidential election on the 3rd November - will have reverberating impact across the globe, such is influence of the United States. 

The radically different persona's, philosophies, even values of the two contenders will have more direct impact to the world economy and the world of business and recruitment than we might first realise. 

- What does a Trump win mean for offshoring & international trade?
- What does a Biden win mean for Universal Basic Income?
- Does DE&I go into reverse under a second Trump Presidential term?
- Will AI accelerate or decelerate under either of these men?
- What role does HR play during / after politically divisive moments?

We're going to be speculating about the near future folks, on the most important single event in 2020. 

Laurie Ruettiman, Lars Schmidt & Tim Sackett joins to help guide us through the culture, politics and economics of the next 4 years in the United States.
