Do you know whom you are hiring? All the information is out there but are you looking?
April 9th, 2011 By - John Slimak
In the past when a company wanted to hire a developer they just asked to see some previous work examples and 2-3 references. If everything was good – the deal was struck.
Today not only do you need to know the work history of your web developer (since most are independent contractors working for themselves) but now you need to check and see if they have a criminal background.
Recently a web developer that did work for us here locally in Indiana was found guilty of 3 Class D felonies and was installed on the sex offenders list for “LIFE”. At no time did we have a clue about the actions and now it is a policy at SteerPoint that we look at all our outside vendors /partners through a microscope before we offer them and their services to our clients.
Before you sign with a developer make sure you do your background…. No matter the talent of one person you don’t want your brand and or image tarnished by someone’s disturbing past.
