Reminder slide

www.wardpeter.com
This means you only need to watch.
There is no need to take notes
Quick Joke
What's is the best way to pay a MVP?
American Express
Because they always take the credit for everything
Takeaways
• I’m not telling anything you don’t know…..
• It’s basically a lot of tip bits
The rest is up to you
 Started contracting May 2010
 Today 2016 - Soho Dragon have 20 employees (dragonettes),
offices in New York, India.
Figure out what you want to do
 Be a professional contractor
 Stop gap job
 Build a company
How to market yourself successfully
Do’s
• Market yourself as you
• Join and participate in LinkedIn in group
• Use LinkedIn, and get a blog and link it to LinkedIn
• Get biz cards with your name on it
• Spend a little bit of money on the basics
Don’t
• Brand yourself out as a company
• You have 1 pair of hands
• You are not a marketing company
Remember
Linkedin Profiles
Contracting
• The Good
• Pay
• Expense benefits
• Flexibility
• The Bad
• It’s on the delivery. That the only thing that’s important
• W2- contracting. The worst of both worlds
• Things can stop unexpectedly, very quickly
• The Ugly
• Payment issues
• Can be a constant follow up with invoices
What skill set do you need?
•We are all technology companies
•What you think
Getting the job
Client
In reality
Getting the job
Client
Recruiter
Outside Recruiter
Microsoft partner
Recruiters
• Contingent recruitment companies- Michael Page, Robert Half, Ajilon.
• These guys work on a contingent basis, so they aren't payed up front.
• They are generally a churn and burn. Recruiter is working on 15+ positions at once.
• The minute your no longer a good fit for their immediate roles, you go on the back
burner.
• These are the jobs you see advertised on job boards. These guys charge about 15%-
25% of fixed compensation.
• Recruitment Process Outsourcing- Pontoon, Kenexa, Kelly, Manpower.
• They act like internal recruitment functions for companies. Variable fees.
Recruiters- Part II
• Jobs are adverted that don’t exist
• The recruiter is not technical
• Jobs requirements are wacky
• Often 3 resumes just have to be sent over
Rate negotiation
• Always ask the rate first
• Don’t fall for the last minute rate reduction
• The cards are stacked in your favor
How to get round the recruiter
• In the interview
• Bring your resume
• Biz card
• Emails from the recruiter
• Confirm the relationship
• Clarify the job responsibilities
• After interview get interview attendee details
• Receptionist
Tea break
• Questions if you want.
Not just good, but great
https://wedoist.com/
Being great- Perception is key
• Meeting on time and conference calls
• Ship dates - I ship my code FEDEX
• Get in early to their office-
How to juggle multiple projects
• Try to work at home on Friday- Always
• 40 hrs…. Over 4 days
Where to find the SharePoint gigs
The devil is in the details
• Transportation
• Software
• Mobile dev- devices
• Payment structure
• Awareness
This is the end.
This is the part of the presentation when people should clap and cheer
Final Tip – How to fill out the
evaluation
“This guy could have invented SharePoint”
“Was this Steve Jobs presenting?”
“I felt I was in the presence of the Pope”
Questions
