Herding Purple Squirrels: An Experienced, Whistle-Blowing Insider's Look at The Dreadful World of Tech Recruiting
Feedback form is now closed.
Ever feel frustrated, exploited - even objectified - by a technical recruiting experience? Understatement of the year: you’re not alone. The hiring process for technical professionals is often Machiavellian and dehumanizing at best. Technical recruiting expert and security recruiting specialist Eve Adams (@hackerhuntress) will give you the rundown on the most common technical recruiting models, how they profit off you, how you can better profit off them, and how best not to get screwed. This will be equally informative for job seekers and technical hiring managers who want to better understand how to hire the best talent quickly and cluefully. Much dirty laundry will be aired, many whistles blown, and many lulz had!
