This session is designed for both job seekers and design managers. The way we do design hiring today is broken. Candidates are required to do too much up-front and still have to complete a long chain of interviews to get an offer. On the other side, hiring managers are overwhelmed by applicants – making it difficult to decide who to move forward into interviews and how to efficiently evaluate skills during the process. This deep-dive will walk through how the design team at Chipper re-evaluated the effectiveness of our hiring process and redesigned it to optimize for: Equity, Respect for candidates’ and team members’ time, and Measurement of the “right skills” for each open position. In the back half of the talk, we’ll also discuss how AI – specifically ChatGPT – is changing the way we’re evaluating portfolios. Join us for a discussion of how “best practices” in hiring must evolve to keep up with expectations from employers and candidates, alike.
