So You Want to Hire a Software Tester …

Have you ever thought about leaving your job but don’t know where to begin? Or maybe you are on the other side of the fence and needing to grow your testing team. Where do you begin to find the right talent? This isn’t your fathers “50 Interview Questions to Ask” lesson. Using his own life lessons and quite a few from the audience Mr. Eakin will walk the audience through the entire hiring process; from getting your name out there with LinkedIn, User Groups and Conferences, through the rigorous (cough cough) filtering process of Recruiters, to asking the right questions to ensure you get an exact skillset match for the position, to how to answer those rigorous questions the right way to ensure your skillset is emphasized, to knowing what skillsets to look for, to closing the deal and landing the job you want. It’s all here. Do you know how to test a pen? Maybe not, but we’ll teach you how to answer the question to make people want to hire you. NOTE: Mr. Eakin is not a Recruiter. Just a Tester who has been around the recruiting block a few more times than he cares to admit.

Session Takeaways:

  • Position yourself to land the job you want.
  • Grow your team with the right talent.
  • Survive a job interview.
