With our jobs fair NET/WORK coming up Tuesday, we’ve got tech recruiting on the brain.
Listen to two takes on the topic in this month’s Podcast: one from University of California, San Diego professor Mary Walshok, who’s done research on tech scenes across the country, including Philadelphia, and another from Steve Dean, a Swarthmore grad who runs a Brooklyn company that he wants to be the OKCupid of job recruiting.
And have you read our eBook yet? Beyond Recruiting features advice from top East Coast tech firms on how to find the best people for your team. Philly companies featured include Tonic Design,, SEER Interactive and Curalate.
