Ok, my comment on this article…
First off, these pieces of advice would be good to use for OVERALL hiring. Not just for IT. You wouldn’t believe the amount of people that I know that applied for a job and waited weeks if not months for the opportunity to interview or get the rejection letter.
Actually, my new interview was just like the ideal one they had in the example.
1 interview? Check!
Got back to me within a few days of applying? Check!
Communicated with me after the interview? Check!
Extended me the offer quickly? Check!
Better than I can say from some companies who hire around the area. I had a friend who was just hired in at another company. He had to wait 3 months before he heard ANYTHING about his application and resume for a job position.
