Are you a technical professional looking for a new job in the Dallas metropolitan area? Then chances are you’ve been frustrated by the whole job search process. Looking at the number of technical jobs posted in the region, one would expect the process to run smoothly, but the competition for Dallas jobs in technology is fierce. Instead of sending resumes blindly through area job boards, or working with “generalist” recruiters, many IT professionals have been successful with specialized technical recruiters.
You can tell it’s been a tough two years in the Dallas IT jobs market when even the most qualified candidates are coming up empty-handed. So it’s easy to see why so many technical recruiters like me are very busy trying to find the right fit for the best people in our database. One thing that surprises me is how many resumes come into our offices that look as if they were written by an 8th grader. Another shocker is how many of these candidates think their resume is terrific.
