Comment on The secret to writing a job post to attract PHP developers by Sean Coates http://blog.calevans.com/2014/08/15/the-secret-to-writing-a-job-post-to-attract-php-developers/comment-page-1/#comment-114054 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:05:04 +0000 http://blog.calevans.com/?p=11210#comment-114054 Additionally helpful (to me, at least), but still simple:

– list a salary range. we don’t care only about money, but we also don’t want to waste our time on you if you (or your client) are only willing to pay 30% of what we need
– I realize that it’s in a recruiter’s best interest to keep the actual position secret, but we need to vet it as much as it needs to vet us. Some of us simply don’t want to work in certain industries, or for certain companies, so hiding that from us is a waste of our time.

Comment on Quick Tip for Building a Culture of Respect by Steve Woodson http://blog.calevans.com/2014/08/06/quick-tip-for-building-a-culture-of-respect/comment-page-1/#comment-113911 Wed, 06 Aug 2014 15:07:11 +0000 http://blog.calevans.com/?p=11184#comment-113911 One of my favorite parts of the day is taking an afternoon break with the rest of my team and making some good french press coffee so this one hit pretty close to home. We all get to step away for 15 minutes and just shoot the shit, after doing this for months I can’t agree more with this advice.

Comment on It’s all about culture by Christopher Pecoraro http://blog.calevans.com/2014/07/30/its-all-about-culture/comment-page-1/#comment-113889 Sun, 03 Aug 2014 17:53:04 +0000 http://blog.calevans.com/?p=11177#comment-113889 This is a great article. When we were in our 20′s, this type of “unending” day was possible. As I am slowly approaching 40, I think that as former programmers from the 90′s era start new companies, they will need to rethink the classic approaches toward employee retention.
