Mindcircuit's goal is to dramatically reduce resume review and interviewing time and avoid costly mis-hires. Our Technical Consultants are technology hiring managers themselves, experienced at interviewing and hiring at multiple levels. We employ deep-probe interviewing methods, asking increasingly challenging questions until the candidate's depth as been reached. Our interview scripts are standardized but flexible.
