First Impression and Employment

I found it’s difficult to work with the person who has not good first impression.

The first impression means:

  • How to talk to others
  • How to think about his/her career
  • How to laugh
  • What he/she are learning
  • etc.

and most engineers have their github account, and the public activities are really useful.

You can see how he/she communicates with others in his/her casual style(not in formal style.)

This is really helpful when you hire someone.

The code he/she wrote is also really important, of course.

I acctually tried this employment style, but my boss-like person refused my judgement. And he was wrong, in fact.

Most Japanese companies might make the same kind of mistakes like him.

I hope they learn and find this ASAP.
