How good are HR people at finding engineers? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi All,

My question is how good are your company HR departments at finding engineers? The place where I work (Midwest defense company that shall go unnamed) seems to do a fair job. There can be a problem with guys hired through a reference from guys that work here already, because they can just be doing each other a favor (one gets a new job, the other a referral bonus). Overall, though I'd say referrals from people already working here are best because we're all looking to make our jobs easier.

Hello Curtis,

HR people were never good at finding engineers and never will be The task of finding the professionaly qualified people is in the hand of the Engineering Managers and the technical people who interview the applicants. HR people are only good at detecting personality problems
(if any) that the applicant might have. They are also good at collecting references etc. Yet in many companies, HR Managers have a high rank in the company and often they make wrong decisions about whom to hire and whom not, based on considerations that don't always follow with the company's best interest!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
