Recruiters Suck. Use them.

In today’s tech market there are more recruiters than JavaScript libraries. And just like JavaScript libraries, it’s hard to pick a good recruiter that that won’t burn out in 6 months. In this open forum talk, I will be answering any and all questions you have always wanted to ask us. Like how do we price positions? What do I look for when working with a recruiter? I will also give tips to everyone like how to write a good resume, are cover letters still relevant, how do I approach a job hunt, and what can make you the most attractive as a candidate in the interview process. This talk is geared for the recent software school grad to the Architect who has recently found themselves back on the job market. I look forward to answering all your questions!
