Managing Your IT Career v6 – (Why do recruiters suck so bad?)


Last year the first question was, “Why do recruiters suck so bad?”

My guess is that sentiment is stronger this year.

This is the 6th year of doing this kind of presentation… a few slides and a lot of Q&A and discussion.

Frequent conversations I have had lately include (and bring what is on your mind): – What the local job market is like right now – How to negotiate a raise, salary, rates and compensation packages – What skill sets are most in demand – Networking, I suck at it. What can I do? – How do I get my first IT job? – And the always popular => if/how to work with search/consulting firms
