John Conde's Blog:
My experience seeking employment as a PHP developer
February 14, 2012 @ 10:07:08

John Conde has shared some of his recent experience when he began job hunting as a PHP developer. If his experience is any indication, it's clearly a good time to be a (qualified) PHP developer.

I created my profile on monster.com on a Monday and made it public that night. The following Tuesday morning my telephone went nuts and my email inbox blew up with recruiters reaching out with positions that I was "perfect for". Over the course of the next week and a half (not including weekends) I spent 10-12 hours a day receiving and returning phone calls, and reading and responding to emails from recruiters.

He received calls from all over the country as well - "apparently experienced PHP developers are in short supply". He points out a few things he found interesting about the search like the fact that unit testing was never listed as a requirement (or even a "plus") in descriptions, only a few descriptions talked about memcache and that PHP wasn't the language over half of the employers were looking for.

He also shares a few hints for those looking for jobs right now, things to add to your resume or look for as far as skills most in demand:

  • Have experience with frameworks
  • Joomla was very commonly being used so being familiar with it is definitely a plus
  • Have sample code to show your coding skills
  • There's more to the world then PHP

Developer Tutorials Blog:
Find your next PHP gig
February 11, 2008 @ 09:46:00

For a lot of developers, just finding good resources to look for a job is half the challenge. Sure, there's the big guys, but what if you need something a little more focused? The Developer Tutorials blog has a few suggestions you can try.

Many position-based boards are full of employers who don't understand the value of quality code. [...] There are really only two ways to find a decent PHP job, then: find freelance projects from clients that will pay for your expertise, or get a full time job. Here are some good destinations for each.

Their suggestions are broken up into two different categories - freelance or waged. The freelance list includes Elance and PHP-Freelancers while their waged list includes the Zend Job Board and the PHPJobs.com website.
