Due to the recent workforce reductions in big technical companies (FAANG) some of us need to go trough recruitment process. We all have a preference for it. Some of us prefer algorithm challenges while others prefer software architecture or real world coding challenges. But the fact remains that we would be the happiest if our future employer could just skip the technical interview. Our credentials are usually good enough to give some insurance that we’re good at what we do.
With technical challenges there are 2 sides of every coin. From one side, hiring manager would love to get the best possible person for the job. However, most of the times he can’t know how that person should look like, what his skills should be, what should be his strong points. Some of the times hiring manager isn’t even sure what will be the exact position current prospect will be filling.
On the other side, a person applying to the job, isn’t sure if this company is his dream company nor if this position is something he’s dreamed about. At the end of the day it can be looked as just doing a lousy job. You do it and get salary in return. Usually if you are applying for a job ,you don’t want to deal with dante’s 7 rings of hell, you don’t want to go trough countless rounds of interviews. At the end of the day there is a collision of interests in recruitment process that hopefully ends with happiness. We are all happy when we recruit someone or when we land a job.
We wish you a pleasant start of new year, and if you are in a job search we hope that you’ll land your dream job 😊
