Voices of the ElePHPant:
Brandon Savage & Scott Gordon discuss pros/cons of working with a recruiter
April 12, 2011 @ 11:39:39

In a new episode of the Voices of the ElePHPant podcast, Cal Evans has taken a break from the normal "Three Questions" format of the podcast so far and has instead posted an discussion about recruiters. Brandon Savage and Scott Gordon talk about the pros and cons of working with recruiters.

Once I read [Brandon's post on why recruiters are bad for your career], I knew that I needed to get Brandon, and another friend of mine, Scott Gordon - a recruiter for Vaco and serious social media bad-ass - together to discuss some of the points Brandon brought out. I shuld probably point out that while Scott is a recruiter, he is not your typical recruiter. He regularly talks about the shortcomings of his industry and he works to make things better.

As always, you can listen to this latest episode either via the in-page player, by downloading the mp3 or by subscribing to their feed.

Michelangelo van Dam's Blog:
Job Hunting 101
December 22, 2010 @ 11:15:02

Those developers out there currently looking for a job (you shouldn't have to look too far) might want to read Michelangelo van Dam's take on job hunting 101 for of his experiences when recruiters contacting him.

In this day and age, everyone uses the internet for finding new jobs or to find a new employee, but more and more I sense that it's all turning into one big mess. This blog post is devoted to all those people contacting me because they have the best job position. [...] I know it's a tough market out there, lot's of competition and so many technologies and skills to keep track off. I know, but it is [you, the recruiter's] business! You decided to dive right into the job chaos, so don't cry if you have to do a bit of work. Do you think we just turn on the computer and it writes code itself ? You do your job, I do mine.

He points out a few specific times a recruiter has sent emails about a "direct hire position" that needs filling immediately or a Java developer (when, clearly, Michelangelo is a PHP developer). He also points out to recruiters that, despite what they may think, they're almost never the only one getting in contact about the same job.

if you're out looking for a new PHP job, go check out the community itself. Most of us have a list of companies with PHP job vacancies or we have a shortlist of trustworthy, understanding recruiters that have touched base with the PHP community and won't let you down once you sign up.
