I won’t attend your algorithmic test interview

By Coding Test, Expert Interview, IT recruitment

How does the average person hire a top-notch tailor? They ask the candidates to show them what they’ve stitched so far, maybe even ask them to sew something fast. Then they’ll observe the results, noting how well they operate the sewing machine, the organization of the workplace, and assess the tailor’s attention to detail. Are they wasting too much fabric or simply not doing a very good job?

How do software developers hire top-notch tailors? Well, it would probably go a little something like this; This is a whiteboard. Please draw the difference between Ghiordes and Senneh knot. Derive the length of thread as a function of fabric’s surface area”.

Honestly, I believe that a top-notch tailor should know the difference, but what are we really verifying here? Do you want an elegant jacket or an elegant equation on a whiteboard? Read More

GDPR headache coming to recruitment in 2018 – resolved by Krzysztof Dzioba of EY LAW

By Expert Interview, Human Resources, Recruiting Tips

The Web has transformed how people look for jobs as well as the way companies recruit professionals. Candidates either fill out forms and willingly submit their personal information or are identified by recruiters based on the information they choose to share online. In some cases, the data of candidates involved in the hiring process get mishandled.

On 25 May 2018, a new privacy regulation addressing this issue comes into force. It’s called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

Although May 2018 may seem far away, there’s a lot that needs to be done so you need to start right away. The clock is ticking, but organizations are still far from ready. According to a 2017 study by TrustArc entitled “Privacy and the EU GDPR”, 61% of survey participants reported that they have not started the process of implementing the GDPR. To give you a better understanding of the GDPR and its implications on the recruitment process, we talk to Krzysztof Dzioba of Ernst & Young Law Tałasiewicz, Zakrzewska i Wspólnicy sp.k. Read More
