However, let's switch modes.
Please suggest your solution for the problem of receiving 1,874 resumes for a job posting and, 42 days later, finding your likely candidate on the 244th candidate you reviewed.
I feel like such an automated approach is roundly criticized by HN on a regular basis.
I guess my point is that when you're dealing with this, there are no popular solutions.
Un-networked job seekers need thick skin.
If the job is in fact unimportant, stop pretending like its the bloody presidency and accept candidates who can be trained into it immediately.
This is completely unfair. GP is not an HR professional by any indication. If your accountant says your website looks ugly, do you hire them as your designer?
Anything else is just complaining.
I don't need to know the minutia of a specific field before I can criticize and suggest alternatives.
An accountant does not need to know node before offering comments on site usability, feel, performance. Nobody is hiring them to execute a redesign. They're asking them for an idea on how to improve.
When you get a successful candidate automatically inform everyone else still in the running that the position has been filled.
What's the hard part?
