Hacker X boasts Google, Twitter, and Uber as past companies. I hadn’t heard of any of the brands at the event I attended. While first impressions are hard to shake, at least with a real interview you get that chance. A staggering number of candidates spent too long complaining about their current situation. Hacker X provides interviewers with names and contact info for each attendee. But after speaking with tens and tens of candidates, it’s not easy to stand out.
For companies, the pitch is that each developer was hand picked by the event coordinators. Our event was for full-stack developers with 5 years experience. Here, first impressions aren’t just important, they’re everything. Why their company was wronging them and how much better they are than that. After all the pleasantries, you’ve got about 240 seconds to impress. But don’t spend precious time convincing me that you’re a victim. The fast-paced nature of the event means there is zero time for reflection.
Understandable, since this was a new experience for everyone in the room.
Take a minute to complain and 25% of the time I’ve known you, you’ve been full of negativity. I can’t imagine a situation where complaining about your job makes you look good. If I’m a candidate, I’m avoiding all opinions about my current employer, good or bad. If I’ve only got four minutes to convince someone I’m worthy, I’m focusing on personality and skill set. One of the most surprising things from the night was the number of developers that didn’t want a job. If I were attending as a dev who had no intention of joining another company… But if I had to I’d be sure to lead off the conversation with that. No time to write more than a word or two about each candidate and a quick little ranking. I would bring a fun overview of my skills and experience with a small profile picture. In my experience, it would have put candidates on another level.
The programs come in response to the country's population woes.
