I can’t disclose who it was or what took place, but there are a couple of interesting things to note here:
- Social networking matters. The person that contacted me knew me from my twitter posts and felt comfortable asking.
- A person’s efforts online were noticed. The blog added something to the person’s application. I know because I asked and this was not an HR person, but another techie. They were interested in the posts.
- What you blog about is fair game in the interview. This person said they were going to ask the person about some of their blog posts.
