Managing Your IT Career v7 – (Why do recruiters suck so bad?)


Two years ago the first question was, “Why do recruiters suck so bad?”

Last year it was the second question.

This is the 7th 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 – Are startups any more risky than large employers – How to prepare for and recover from a layoff – Code schools and bootcamps, are they worth the price – How do I create a loose confederation of consultant friends – Specialize or be a master of none
