ISVs, particularly those in start-up mode, face many difficult decisions as their business grows. One of the most difficult is deciding to add employees. For a small operation, bringing on another team member can have a profound impact on the future of the business. As such, the hiring process should not be taken lightly. Unfortunately, all too often we hear about ISVs making avoidable mistakes during the interview and selection process.
With this need in mind, DevPro Journal partnered with Jim Roddy — a speaker, author, and expert on the topic of hiring. Roddy’s book, “Hire Like You Just Beat Cancer,” as well as his speaking engagements on the topic, have been very well-received in the IT world.
Roddy has taken some of his core interviewing and hiring principles, adjusted them for growing ISVs, and created a 5-part education series. By subscribing to this free series, you’ll receive a lesson in your inbox each day for 5 days.
