How to hire

Most company interviews judge candidates based on a set of pre determined, mostly openly available memory based questions, whose answers are never used again on the job. Good interviews should cover much more than just a set of text book questions, but how a candidate thinks about a problem, and how they have coded in their past projects, and what their opinions are about the field they are in, to help hire more well-rounded individuals.

Another interesting take on how to hire.
