Industry thieves

  1. 1. Industry ThievesTHE MODERN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT RECRUITERPROVIDING NO VALUE AT A VERY HIGH COST
  2. 2. Who are they?  Business majors  NFC Cheerleaders  Car salespeople  Non technical people of any sort
  3. 3. What do they do?  Nothing  Encourage developers to leave perfectly good employment utilizing various tactics  Business development  Catalyze the “developer cycle”  Encourage dishonesty in representation  Finance wages for employers
  4. 4. What do they claim?  Highly specific technical screening  Any job they know of is better than your job  Anything but what they actually do
  5. 5. What is our message?  Business: You do not need them: they provide no value and add considerable cost  Developers: You do not need them: developers are sparse and needs are abundant  Everyone: We have a long term solution, we need your help and participation with the above and more to succeed
  6. 6. Take action  Help us start to break the developer cycle  Preregister at breakthedevcycle.com (live 11/2013)  Educate your leaders and human resource people on using job boards like dice, stackoverflow, careerbuilder  Realize that while it may be difficult now there are only so many developers; consider mentoring, internships, career fairs  Build your network on linkedin  You have the same if not greater access to the pool of developers in existence, your people are more qualified to develop requirements, screen candidates, and interview; recruiters don’t do any of these things now anyways
  7. 7. How can we help?  We Develop Software  We will not focus on business development, but will focus on people  We mentor and encourage those interested in software development already  We recognize that development is and has been the fastest growing field for years: this coupled with the low supply and premium of recruiters is pushing jobs overseas  This usually results in an even higher cost  We will actually help both parties as we have the ability to provide the services technical recruiters currently lie about
  8. 8. Thank You!We look forward to a revolution.
