Inc. (USA) - - STATE OF HIRING 2018 -

“At my first com­pany, CrowdCom­pass, I of­fered a class in build­ing apps for the iPhone. We ad­ver­tised it on col­lege cam­puses, at de­vel­oper Mee­tups, on Craigslist. The ses­sion took place over a long week­end and cost $400. About a dozen peo­ple came and par­tic­i­pants had no idea we were look­ing for tal­ent. We got to ob­serve them work­ing hand­son and as­sess their de­sire for con­tin­u­ous learn­ing. We did that five times and hired two or three peo­ple from each group.”

David Shan­ley Vice pres­i­dent of an­a­lyt­ics, Jama Soft­ware Port­land, Ore­gon
