Finally, with all of your efforts you are not comfortable with the HR pushed candidates, through the top management pressures.
Now how to smoke test the joined person ?:
Step1:Just have a call with the new joinee. Record his voice and compare it during the interview you did recording. If it is different, obviously he used the Proxy services to fake his selection process.
Step2: Check his resume. You compare with your current project tasks. Identify one task and give him to complete infront of you. If he is fake guy, he will do lot of work around.
Step3: Ask him to orient one of your development team members on his recent process followed and implemented the cloud/DeveOps tasks. Where that task is more relevant for your current project need.
Step4: If he is succeeded in the above tasks, identify some more tasks. If he is through you don’t need to worry. He is a capable guy.
Cloud cum DevOps Coaching: How to filter the fake profile ?
In IT industry the fake profiles burning is there since 2.5 decades as I am aware.
With my past experiences, I would like to share the below points to consider along with your planning/actions to reject them.
If you see a fake profile, they write every technology related to the activity. With multiple technologies/tools usage in a single project is not possible. Any project can use one or two tools only with limited budget.
You need to consider a scenario as per the resume points mentioned.
And design a POC, and ask the candidate to do it in a given time.
[Your POC can be designed as per the JD requirement also.]
Also monitor his POC steps execution, like is there any proxy guy doing it.
First you get the candidate’s IP address. And monitor his IPs actions through a tool.
You also ask him to share the screen, with a recording option from your laptop.
And finally once he has done, ask him in a different paths how this POC can be designed ?
Note: I will be adding in future some more points in this blog.
Just be aware most of the large IT cos have the recruiters scam for higher CTC positions. They are tied up with many placement agencies.
