How to Hire Top React JS Developers? A Step-by-Step Scrutinizing Instructions
Step 1. Do Candidate Research Properly.
Ahead of all, go hand in hand with your HR team and do the candidate scrutiny by exploring his resume.
Put your uncanny sight on two important things in his CV, which are-
What kind of app projects he has worked on? See, what his role was in his previous projects? Were those React projects? Also read his testimonial carefully if he has any.
His area of expertise (in our case, it should be “React JS”)
How can you utilize his React JS app development experience in your current project? Which frameworks and technologies he has worked on? Has he developed any similar app in his previous company? Put a glimpse on his previous company status too.
Although a candidate who has pretty-much experience in necessary technology (like- React JS), doesn’t ensure him as a potential React developer for your project. You have to dig-out his true potential by asking a few important React questions in the next interview round.
Step 2. Get Prepare For Interview Session.
Do some homework before you go to sit with your interviewer panel. It is essential as it is not just a candidate who prepares for his interview. The interviewer should also be prepared to ask necessary questions regarding specific technology. This is the only way to dig-out one’s real knowledge.
Read some essential interview questions listed below, that you must ask a React JS developer:
1. What are pure functional Components?
2. How will you use keys in React?
3. How will you use refs in React?
4. Describe the significant role of keys?
5. Compare the different React Component lifecycle processes. How can you use them in creating a certain interface or feature?
6. How will you build HOCs (Higher Order Components) in React?
7. What is Virtual DOM? Explain it.
8. Compare forceUpdate() & setState() functions.
Add a senior React developer in your interview panel. He knows the best tricks that you must consider during the candidate screening. No matter how much total work experience ones have, it all goes in vain if it is not what you are looking for.
Step 3. Evaluate the final result and hire the perfect candidate.
Lastly, after testing a developer technical competency and soft skills, evaluate the final result. Hire React JS developer who is perfectly fit in your company work culture. Remember to discuss all the term and conditions in details with someone whom you want to hire.
