re: Should interviewees be allowed to search for answers? VIEW POST


I would say the best coding challenges are where you ask them to work on a very small project that tests the skills you need. You should allow libraries and allow research. Give them a whole week to spend their time on it.

Hackerrank style tests only test their ability to competitive program. And while that is a skill, it's not one often needed in software engineering.

I would be interested in how readable they've made a solution, how they use comments, how they test something etc rather than how quickly they can encode a string to another string.
