At Nearsoft, recruiting is one of our core competencies. We are constantly looking for and interviewing talented developers. In this section you will find tips and tricks to improve your own selection process.
In the technology space talent has been in short supply for a while now. Competition is nothing short of fierce.
For a company, one option is to become a talent magnet, the place where the bestest and brightest want to join. At the other end of the spectrum, you just take who you can get and do the best you can.
The latter has never been an option for Nearsoft.

A horror story is what you’ll become if you insist on adding inappropriate stuff to your resume.
The time has come for you to look for a job and finally act like a grown up. But you have to stand out amongst a sea of unemployed professionals!
Just don’t go overboard. Tell your story in a way that’s compelling, not laughable.
