A talk (25 minutes)

Hiring is hard, it's hard to do well, it's easy to do badly. Here's some things to avoid!

Maybe you control hiring decisions at work, maybe you're an interviewer or applicant reviewer, or maybe you're trying to be hired somewhere - chances are you're exposed to the hiring process somehow.

I'll show you a selection of things that people do, with all the best intentions, and the problems that can arise, so you can avoid them and do better!
