The Southeast's premier PHP community

February 2014 Meeting

PRESENTATION: The PHP and Open Source Job Market in 2014

Presentation by Ari Waller, Vice President of Recruiting, Thompson Technologies (@ariwaller and @ThompsonTechIT)

Description: The presentation will be an overview of the current PHP developers job market as we begin 2014 (as well as other Open Source related trends). We will examine the current supply and demands in the market place, as well as conduct a career-oriented Q&A (Resumes, interviews, and overall job hunting tips and strategies). Ari will cover a year by year comparison from his previous talk and discuss changes on what we can expect in the upcoming year. We will also discuss how to work with recruiters as effectively as possible, and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have regarding the inner workings of an IT Staffing company.

Note from Ari: I want to assure you this is not a IT Staffing Commercial.  I am looking forward to sharing direct and useful data with an understanding that many of your members will never use a recruiter to find an opportunity. I am also hoping to answer any questions they have based on good and bad experiences they have had with recruiters if they would like.
