Hello, tmux, you wrote: T> It would be desirable to ask still a question - if to present that you employ the manager in the company - as you understand that this person - what is necessary to you? T> on interview you pay attention to what markers? Nonspecific markers: 1. Punctuality. It is impossible to be late for interview. If for any good reason it can happen (road accident, serious failure in public transport operation, etc.) It is necessary to notify in advance, i.e. a minimum for 15-20 minutes, reasonably estimating and informing new time. This general rule for the organization of meetings which it is necessary to show from the first contact to the potential employer. Anything terrible if personal circumstances lead to a canceling of interview and transfer the next day and if thus the candidate manages to arrange it correctly. 2. Literacy (Russian and English, oral and written speech). Literacy is estimated not only in conversation, but also in reading of the materials given by the candidate - the abstract, documentation examples, etc. English at level not more low upper intermediate - is necessary! 3. Politeness. I prefer the formal dialogue on "you" between strangers and strongly I do not love sudden passages to "you" without the preliminary arrangement. The mobile phone should be ungeared - if the person waits for an important call for any reason, about it it is necessary to notify in advance and to apologize, as time spent for a call on interview, is time of all its participants. T> your judgement would be interesting. I for myself tried to answer the question - my variant: T> 1. A portfolio of successful projects Yes, always interesting that the person achieved that introduced itself with what learned to work. T> 2. (Whenever possible) Responses of the former subordinates and principals interesting, but not always probably to receive. All such responses, as a rule, transit through the candidate (at least, it supervises the contact list), therefore they always positive and it is necessary to read between lines, analyzing what exactly in the candidate praise and what preferred to hold back. T> 3. Questions on check of ability of planning, documentation and report writing under the project, ability to justify a position or any decision by means of the facts, digits... I personally consider an openness and readiness to justify the decision very important quality, therefore really I ask questions on this subject. I have a dial-up of modeling cases from practice which I give to candidates and offer about their actions in these situations. Flow criterion is the amount of attention which the candidate gives communications with subordinates and counterparts and to the analysis of their needs (customers, accessory manufacturers, a manual, etc.) Planning, writing of the documentation and the reporting under the project separate subjects on my interviews are not - more knowledge and understanding of process in whole (here knowledge PMBoK and methodologies Agile if it proves to be true ability to explain why strongly helps and what for in methodologies there are those or other rules) interests. The Same reports are a form of communications, they are no means always necessary - can be and other forms of transmission of knowledge of a state of affairs and results of operation (it will be healthy if the candidate is capable of this subject from efficiency and motivation positions).
