Episode 51 – More On Hiring

Welcome back to another Testing In the Pub – Episode 51 – More On Hiring. In this episode we finally continue our chat about hiring. Sorry it’s been so long coming.

In it we talk about a lot of things hiring related, including portfolios. The blog post Steve mentions is this one.

Episode 50 – Hiring

Yes, it’s episode 50 – Hiring.

In this episode we talk about hiring, both from the perspective of someone wanting to be hired, and someone hiring. It’s the first part of a two part episode.

As you may notice we ‘may’ have forgotten that we’ve reached the landmark of 50 episodes. Oops ūüôā Thanks to everyone who’s listened so far, we’ve got lots more great episodes planned to stick around for what comes next.

Episode 49 – Leadership vs Management

Welcome to this episode of Testing In the Pub, it’s Episode 49 – Leadership vs Management.

In this episode we sit down and discuss the differences between leaders and managers. Can everyone be a leader or a manager? What are the common misconceptions in managerial and leadership skillsets? How does coaching and mentoring fit in?

Hopefully this episode starts to answer these questions. There’s more to come so listen to future episodes where we’ll delve into all of this in more detail.
