Assign a Hypothetical Project

It Gets their Juices Flowing

October 21, 2015

“Frontend development involves subjectivity — design, user interaction, user experience, etc. Therefore, be sure to ask candidates to share their portfolios and probe into what they specifically contributed to each sample. Then if you’re still on the fence, assign a hypothetical project to create a compelling and effective frontend application.

It should go without saying that this project should be unrelated to your actual work projects. No candidates want to feel like you are asking them to solve your actual work problems for free. A nice touch is to offer to pay the candidates for their time.” – Peggy Shell, CEO and Founder of Creative Alignments
