Free Ebook: Getting Hired
From the Introduction:
aoThis e-book will hopefully show you how to put yourself across to a prospective employer in a way that makes it easy for them to spot what you have to offer them, to increases your chances of successfully finding a job in the United Kingdom's computing industry.
aoRecruitment processes vary from employer to employer. I'll take you through the most likely steps that you need to get through. I'll explain the process from the employer's perspective first, and then from your point of view as someone applying for a job. A better understanding of what the recruitment process is, and why, will help you avoid the common pitfalls along the way.
aoThe second part of the book is more about you, about what you need to do to be prepared for when you join the industry, either during an industrial placement year or when you graduate and leave academia. Ours is a multi-disciplined industry where things change rapidly, so to help you prepare, I've finished off the book with some lists of the fundamental skills that industry expects you to have before you start your first job.a
