How to interview?

    A good article on how to interview new candidates. Its much better that the numerous sites which give you a whole list of questions to ask right from whats 1+1 to what is cross-correlation. The basic idea is that you test a persons ability to solve problems,identify his approach, style of work, his eagerness to be discover new things, is he innovative, is he passionate about what he does, etc and not question him on hard facts which can be searched on the web in seconds.

    This article talks on similar lines. We want to recruit good enterprising personalities and not skill sets which will become obsolete in due time.  Its easy to find skill sets but a challenge to find talented people and a bigger challenge is to retain them.

    More on the retaining stuff in a future blog.
