We Hired! Our Hiring Process

Have you ever sent in your resume to an employer and thought, “this doesn’t represent me in the best way. If only they knew me they’d hire me. If only I could put myself across, instead of only having this cold, dry resume.” Well, at Radar Hill we really try to get to know our applicants, by conducting group interviews. Why do we do that? Let’s use an example from a recent hiring we did for an administrative assistant.

Looking Back On The Year

Radar Hill programmer Shannon cradling Dan's wheaten terrier, Oliver.In difficult moments such as these (the internet is down), we take time to reflect on the past year of achievements, struggles, and good times.

I only got out of bed at Tracy’s (my wife) insistence that I was really sick. Continue reading
