Show-Vs-Tell: What are your experiences?
So, I've been pleasantly surprised by how I've gotten work lately as a freelance contractor. Rather than the traditional behavioral-based interview questions, several potential clients have set me up with a test of sorts. I get an assignment usually accompanied by a sample of similar work and have a specified amount of time to return my deliverable for review and approval or rejection. So far it's been all approval!
I find this interview process to be EXTREMELY progressive and really love some of the results of what I bring to the table. I'm wondering if this is a trend. Are other freelance contractors or folks looking for W-2 employment being engaged in the interviewing process by having their skills tested instead of a behavioral-based interview question process?
