The Technical Interview, Bias, and What We Learned

Over the course of 2016, Code2040 brought a group of 9 tech companies together periodically to deconstruct the dysfunctions of the technical interview. We came away learning about the process, content, training, and competency issues that currently exist in identifying entry level talent. This panel will explore what we learned, give advice for those seeking to create a better more inclusive interview process, and discuss the steps 4 different companies took after the learning.
