Today's questions are:
02:36 How do you assess cultural fit as a job candidate?
If someone isn't hired, how can they know if there was something wrong with his resume or if it was a personal issue that prevented him from getting hired?

08:16 What should I do? I had two job interviews and I got a job offer immediately contingent background check I accepted, but hours later the other job requested a background check? Should I decline since I already accepted the other offer?

09:51 Being a recruiter, how can I improve my sourcing skills?

11:51 Are there employers recruiting candidates without requiring an online job application and questionnaires?

16:17 How should a leader deal with poor performance in the team?

18:36 It seems like a job interview is a way to find a reason not to hire rather than to evaluate the person? Is this true?

20:09 Is there anything you can do to a prospective employee who asked for an extension on their job offer, accepted the job, and then took another job two months later, i.e. too late to make the job offer to the next candidate?

21:45 How do you answer the question on an interview "how do you deal with pressure or stressful situations" in an interview?

23:36 When a hiring manager on the way out the interview room asks the next interviewer to go easy on the software engineering candidate, what does it mean?

24:37 What is the most common way people get off to a bad start with their resumes?

26:30 As a software engineering interviewer, would you request the candidate to turn on the camera if they haven’t turned on their camera during a remote interview?

28:36 As a software engineering manager, when you see that an engineer is quiet in meetings, would you encourage them to share their opinions during our 1 on 1 meetings with them?
