#5 Hiring and the hiring process


Dan and Jon talk about the process they go through when hiring a new employee and what they look for in potential candidates. They go into detail about the places they advertise, the applications that come in, the filtering that takes place and how the process is moved forwards into interviews. They also cover what they look for in potential candidates, short intensive courses, as well as gender equality.

You might get a lot from this one if you're either looking for a job in UX, Design or Development, or if you're also a small company looking for hire your early employees.
