I do basically what you described, @molly_struve
What I look for in an intern is:
Humility and willingness to learn.
Basic coding skills — this is an internship, not CS-101.
Good (if unpolished) communication skills.
Self-discipline and a sense of responsibility for their own work.
A passion for their craft.
A healthy perspective on workplace diversity.
My hiring process is an initial interview, a take-home coding challenge, and a final interview. (This whole process is full-remote.) I've been refining it for several years, and my hiring success rate has gone up with every improvement.
This is awesome! Thanks!
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
