Stefan Koopmanschap's Blog:
About your job opening...
October 05, 2011 @ 09:09:09

If you're currently looking for developers to fit the needs of your company but just can't seem to find a good fit, Stefan Koopmanschap has a good suggestion you might want to follow to be more effective in your search.

The PHP job market is booming. Lots of companies are looking for (good) developers, but these are hard to find. Lots of developers are looking for a (good) job, but these are equally hard to find. Wait, that sounds strange... but it's true.

He points out that he's seen several companies put other technologies besides their core technology in their ads (shame on them). He suggests that companies think about what tech you really work with and stick with that on the resume - don't try to pull in people with hype and buzzwords.

Dedicated Job Postings Section Released
June 20, 2008 @ 13:02:35

In order to help potential PHP employers find that developer of their dreams, the PHPClasses.org website has launched their own jobs section "dedicated to announce jobs specifically for PHP professionals".

Having perceived this extraordinary need for qualified PHP professionals, in the latest months the development of the PHPClasses site has been focused in making it easier for businesses to find PHP professionals. [...] The PHPClasses site is launching a complement to the PHP professionals directory. It is new job site dedicated exclusively to post PHP jobs. Actually, it is not a separate site, but rather a new section of the PHPClasses site: http://www.phpclasses.org/jobs/

This new section allows employers to post their open positions complete with the skills required and see as being able to search for someone matching those criteria. Pricing for posting the jobs ranges anywhere from $25 USD and $75 USD based on the type of user posting and how urgent it is that the post is released.

Developer Tutorials Blog:
PHP Qualifications The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
January 28, 2008 @ 11:22:00

Akash Mehta mentions on the Developer Tutorials Blog about some of his experiences with interviews, specifically dealing with the certifications people list on their resumes.

As he sees it, there's three categories:

  • The Good - things like the ZCE
  • The Bad - proof of testing but no proof of experience
  • The Ugly - failing to have anything to show your ability/knowledge

It's all about image, even when it comes to hiring a good programmer. Employers are looking first for someone who even vaguely looks like they know their stuff, then they dive deeper into the real skills and talents that potential employee might have.
