  • 1. Finding a job in Linux Todd Nilson @talentline411
  • 2. Where to look LinkedIn User Groups Conferences Everywhere?
  • 3. Why both Indeed & SimplyHired? Like any search engine, there's some but not total overlap in the results between the two.  Use both to give yourself a better picture of the job market as it relates to you.
  • 4. What you need to land the job Certifications? A four-year degree? Three-to-five years of experience? Ability to say it to someone non-technical Ability to write it simply Ability to network live and virtually Good interviewing skills
  • 5. You can’t get there from here Sneaky ways to get the requisite experience that you can’t get unless you have the requisite experience (!) include working on Open Source projects, volunteering, and taking desk support jobs where Linux is in use.
  • 6. Please don’t force me to use Windows! Identifying a company friendly to mixed, integrated environment is a matter of talking to people who work (or, better yet, have worked) there.
  • 7. Meritocracies Preferred Use network connections or research online to learn more about whether a company is ethical and does not use technologies "just because." Is it an ethical company? “Why do we use Java? We just do. It’s what’s used right now.”
