The goal of this session is to introduce developers and designers to what Owners, Executives, Hiring Managers and HR Personnel look for when adding members to their team. It doesn't matter if you're brand new to the industry or a 'grizzled vet'...this session is designed to give you some insights into what, where, when, why and how decision-makers in our industry actually want to hire YOU!

What do I really need to do to impress someone enough to get an interview?
What skills do I really need (other than being a code junkie?!?)

Designers vs. Developers vs. Everyone Else
The power of diversity!

Why Drupal matters (but why it isn't EVERYTHING)
