As mentioned earlier, Auro Infotech is hiring in full speed this month and we already sent out appointment orders to six of the candidates.
As we are also hiring freshers, I was always going through a strange scenario where with some of the freshers, I found it difficult to ask them any question.
The reason is that they are not familiar with any of the technologies we are working on (eg. PHP, AJAX, MySQL, XML, DIV tags, etc).
Today I came up with an idea to solve this. During the interview, I recommended a fresher candidate to go to Auro Infotech Blogs and study all the topics under it (especially the Policies and Procedures section). I asked the candidate to email me whenever this person is ready for the next round of interview that will be only around Auro Infotech Blogs content.
This helps me with two things:
1. It gives us a good opportunity to educate the potential candidates on what Auro Infotech is all about.
2. It also helps us to educate them on the software development life cycle, qa testing process and various other processes that are key to their career.
I wish I had got this idea a few months back, I would have used this approach with all candidates.
In any case, feeling quite good about it as this should solve the problem I have faced with fresher interviews in the past.
