To underline their points, I’d like to link to three job descriptions on Microsoft Careers:
In particular, in her article "Improving Hiring Processes" Lisa Haneberg elaborates:
"Companies can do five things to help win the competition for the best employees:
- Ensure that practices are people-centric.
- Flexibly define job requirements.
- Conduct high-quality interviews.
- Practice proactive sourcing techniques.
- Develop a reputation as a great place to work."
Nothing more to add to this.
