I've been around in the software industry for a while, and I've always been involved in interviewing and recruiting. It was only recently, however, that I was reminded of what it's like to be on the other side of the interview process. Identifying and landing great candidates is really hard - I typically interview about 10-20 candidates for each offer we make. One of the most frustrating things is when we find a great candidate and offer a position, only to have them turn us down. I wanted to take the opportunity to see what could be learned from looking at the process from the candidate's perspective. I made several observations that I think can help both in identifying the right candidates, and making sure that we land them.
