Standing Out to Beat the System

Last updated: 4 months ago

What if you could get your dream job without having to interview? You can, if you step out from the crowd of applicants and do something different. In this talk I’ll share some stories with you:

  • How I joined the team of the most popular iOS tutorial site on the internet, without applying.
  • How I landed a swanky new job with a generous increase in pay, while mostly skipping the interview process.

The secret is in standing out. Following the regular interview process is no way to get noticed, but there are simple and cunning techniques you can use to be considered first. I’ll show you how much you can achieve by beating the system and making sure you get recognised. I'll help you find new ways to achieve your goals, and have fun while doing it – rather than writing essays and spending time on whiteboard interviews!
