Find the Right Candidate – And Help Them Find You!

Caryn Neiswender and Jeremy Thacker: University of California, Irvine

Hiring the right candidate can be difficult. Most recruitments include a familiar set of questions and settings that the candidate can prepare for and complete without having the necessary skills or experience. Academic Web Technologies at UCI developed a new interview method inspired by our own Agile process and the real world demands of the job. By participating in a simulation of workplace challenges, candidates were introduced to our team’s workflow and culture. Our hope was that we would identify candidates with relevant skills and the potential to excel. We will discuss our process and evaluate its success, in hopes of inspiring other teams to break out of the interviewing mold and improve their chances of finding the right fit.
