I’ve grown up reading Tom Clancy and probably most of you have at least seen Red October, so this book caught my eye when browsing used books for a recent trip. It’s a fairly human look at what’s involved in sailing on a Trident missile submarine…
Post-webcast update: The webcast went well! We talked, we QnA’ed, we gave out a free Roadmap, and all attendees got a discount code. I’ve been asked several times, so I went ahead and posted the full Live Meeting recording over on www.DBARoadmap.com:
As I had hoped, a recruiter attended the webcast and took issue with some of the things we said. I have a call or two scheduled with him to see if he can change my mind – or at least explain further – the ways and reasonings of a recruiter. Look for more on this in the near future! -J
Guys! We’re totally hosting our first DBARoadmap-sponsored webcast this week! Here are your details (updated to use LiveMeeting):
Who: Sean and Jen McCown, the MidnightDBAs (and you)
What: The Art and Science of Handling Recruiters, webcast complete with lecture, slides, FAQ, and pretty pretty pictures. At least 3 of those 4 guaranteed.
When: Thursday, August 23 at 11:30pm Central
This meeting is now closed.
Recruiters have the inside track on the majority of full time positions out there, but they come with a certain set of issues. You will find the occasional gold level recruiter who really knows his or her business, but most recruiters require a certain level of handling.
Here we’ll talk about some of the more common issues with technology recruiters, strategies for dealing with them, and some of the best advice you’ll never hear anywhere else.
Sponsored by www.DBARoadmap.com – attendees will receive a discount code, and one lucky attendee will get a free copy of the Roadmap!
