ASK IH: I have a dilemma. What would you do?
Hello, Indie Hackers!
This is my attempt to begin my transition from a wantrepreneur to entrepreneur.
The idea for the product I’m about to start working on grew from my personal experience of interviewing software engineers. There were simply too many people who made it through recruiter’s screening and who couldn’t code. So 4 out of 5 candidates would be like that.
I believe creating a platform with assignments close to real-world problems can help both recruiting companies to reduce the number of unprepared candidates and also people to refresh their hands-on coding skills.
Nevertheless, I have a rough idea on how to reach out to companies who’d get on board, however, finding candidates is what I’m puzzled with. I already tried asking this question on one of those question-answer platforms but that didn’t get me any leads.
What do you think are possible strategies for finding those candidates?
