I need to hire 2-3 developers, quickly (large company and budgets shift quickly, so spend it or lose it). They will be hired in town and work out of our main offices - we have 4 buildings on our campus.
Problem - I sustained an injury this past weekend, will need surgery, and probably will not be able to put pants on for 4-5 weeks, maybe longer. I definitely will not be able to be in the office the next week, possibly 2-3.
So can I get away with shorts during an interview where normal dress code is strict business casual? Could I conduct interview off campus? Also is taking a large amount of pain killers good for interview :)?
Addition: I hire a lot of tech jobs globally. The board is giving me clearance to start a team in my area, with these being the first few hires (just one person under me in my area now). I am trying to prove to them that they will get a great bang for their buck as my area is relatively cheap for tech in the US and by me vetting the people out in person I feel I can hire superior people. [fully aware this could backfire but I have enough clout that if it fails they will just laugh it off]
