Software developers exploring learning and education in programming. Hosted by web developers and teachers Ken Howard and Nikos Katsikanis.
Reece is one of my favourite recruiters and we get together for catchups from time to time. Reece also runs a growing esports company.
In this episode, we cover what makes the difference between good and bad recruiters and many of the problems in the industry, and what developers like and dislike. We cover many of the big issues and features of this industry such as:
- Spam and several recruiters for the same job offering contacting the same developer
- Broken Interview process and jumping through hoops
- Commission models
- Green recruiters with no knowledge of the tech
- Interview leads (fakes jobs and gathering references)
