|JamLegend is about to hire some interns for the summer and we'd like your advice.|
We're about to conduct some interviews and are still receiving applications. Honestly, this would be our first time bringing folks in. We don't know how to go about this the right way, so we wanted to seek out HN advice advice about Dos and Don'ts in the world of hiring and share with everyone.
Since we've just begun our process, we've come upon some tips on HN and elsewhere that we thought would be nice to share. See the comments below separated by stage (sorting resumes, interviewing, puzzles, etc.). We'd really appreciate the help because we want to make sure we're bringing on the right people.
Edit: I took off links so I'm not hawking my wares like a Chinese DVD merchant, we're honestly interested in getting advice on how to hire correctly.
