I think probably the biggest hurdle is to weed out what people have been
trained on, and what they "know". Many people claim to know PHP, CF,
ASP, Java, Javascript, SQL, DB2, etc....., but many have only a basic
level of understanding.

I think key questions would revolve around how many sites they have
built based on a particular technology that is key to your organization.
Ask for examples. If you know the technology, you can usually discover
an applicant's level of expertise with a few key questions.

WRT the classifieds, make sure you are clear about the technologies and
expertise you are looking for.

Hi everyone.

I am being considered as a candidate for a 'team leadership' position
with a small-but-ambitious web development company. I am *almost*
qualified ;), and think that it sounds like a pretty fun job. The job
description mostly centers around using my knowledge of web development
to produce sites for small business clients and to share what I know
with a 2-3 person staff of employees and contractors to aid them in
contributing to those projects (staff management).

My first job would be to weed through resumes to select members of the

I'm putting together a list of possible interview questions for
applicants and would love any input that is available from your
experiences. I guess I could also use help with wording classified ads
announcing the openings. Like...I need entry level production people who
aren't experienced enough to be expensive, but are experienced enough to
be useful. How do you ask for that?

any thoughts on this appreciated.
