In this episode, Cory and I begin by talking about the almost unbelievable stories of a different person showing up in the interview than was supposed to! An engineer sends a different person to the interview! It’s crazy to think that happens – but it’s far more common than we’d like to believe.
Cory also talks about the lack of transparency on the part of the recruiter in the process. It’s not to say that the engineer needs to know everything about the process, but we talk about a few critical things that can be left out of a conversation that are important for the person being hired to be aware of.
We also talk about another area of transparency when it comes to what a recruiter charges vs. what is being paid to the engineer. Why does it matter? Is is it important to share, and if so, when and how? We also talk about what follows that kind of transparency. Does an engineer have a clear understanding of why that amount is being charged?
We dive into a deeper topic that revolves around trust and building relationships as the cornerstone of that experience.
I hope you enjoy this ongoing mini “versus” within the LinkedIn Live audio series.
