Course Overview
Hi everyone my name is Jason Alba. Welcome to my course, The Successful Technical Interview for Interviewers. As an IT manager and then owner of a software firm, I've interviewed more than a few people over the years. Interviewing has always been a somewhat confusing task. There's lots of advice on how to do it, but the advice seems disjointed and inconsistent. In this course, I want to help solve that. I talk to you about how you can conduct a much better interview. We go over interview basics and then, dig into different types of questions to really help you assess the candidates you interview. We'll talk about how to define the purpose of each question for the job you're working to fill. We'll also talk about using resumes as an interviewer, and how to avoid problems with certain questions. The end result of these tactics is that you will be in a position to optimize your time with each interviewee, and find the best candidate. By the end of this course, you should feel like you're ready for a full round of interviews. You'll have some how-to tactics and should understand the why behind what you're doing. After watching this course, continue your learning by diving into other professional development courses, like Working and Communicating with Different Personalities, and How to Be a Great Mentor, and of course, Leadership, Getting Started. I hope you'll join me on this journey of improving your career with the Successful Technical Interview for Interviewers course at Pluralsight.
