What Can Brown Do For You?


I spent the last couple days interviewing people.  The funny thing is that one of them will be my new manager.  I've interviewed people for engineering positions before, but this was a new twist on things.  I'm not terribly concerned with technical ability in my manager (though he/she should have some).  Side note, none of the candidates were women, which I found a little odd.  Anyway, we've had 11 candidates over 3 days, I got 30-40 minutes with each of them.  4 candidates were from the outside (though one worked here in the past), and the other 7 were internal.  I have my favorites, but we'll see what happens.  In all, I think it was a good learning experience for me.  I don't think I'll get many opportunities to interview people at that level for a while, and I like the opportunity to be able to pick my future boss.  Hopefully, I can get one that I can get a big raise from.
