48 HR RAFFLE: 5 free ebooks - "Job Tips For GEEKS: The Job Search" 

Dave Fecak is a friend of the LJC. He is the founder of the Philadelphia Java User Group and like our founder, is a recruiter with good intentions. He keeps a blog called and has recently released a book with his advice on getting a job. As part of this we are running a promotion for the LJC in which you can win one of 5 free ebooks. 

The winners will be picked at random on Tuesday 10th September, and announced shortly afterwards.

To enter simply RSVP to this event and complete the questions. 

"Job Tips For GEEKS: The Job Search" is a step-by-step guide to a job search written specifically for software engineers and technical professionals.  The book is organised chronologically and begins with steps to take before you start your search, and progresses through the various stages all the way through acceptance of an offer and transitioning into the new role.  It is written by a recruiter and also provides extensive insight into working with recruiters and how to avoid some of the issues that recruiters can cause.  Topics covered include managing your online presence, writing effective resumes and introduction/cover letters, evaluating five job search methods, phone and personal interview tips, keeping job search metrics, negotiating, balancing multiple job offers, acceptance and resignation, etc.  This is not a book of technical questions that you may be asked in interviews, but rather a complete guide to the job search process."
