Land Your Next PHP Job

We have many new developers in our group, and I have been asked a few times what should be done to land a job. Please come out and hear Dennis' presentation on what you should consider doing when you want to land your next PHP job.

I also encourage everyone to come out to contribute to this conversation, even if you're not looking for a job. Come out and be a mentor to those that are looking.

    Really wanted to catch this one! I have school the same night and time, so making it to meetings is very difficult. Is it possible to post transcripts or videos on popular subjects? Meetings won't have to be repeated over and over and we can all get the valuable answers we are seeking.

      Awesome! Thank you. I keep hearing age is a factor in hiring new programmers. I am 39 and just starting a new career change. Am I facing a rough road ahead?

      Jason, if you are facing a rough road ahead because of age then so am I and we could get rich from age discrimination. :) I'm sure some companies prefer younger coders that don't have a life and are willing to work 10-15 hours a day.

    Couldn't find parking. I'll ride my bike down if I can rally the energy after some dinner.

  • Danail D.

    does this place have parking or just park on the street?

    February 20, 2013

    • Eric Van J.

      Yeah I know that sucks.

    Hi. I've been doing PHP since 1996 ... it has come a long way since then. Sounds like a good meetup!

    This will be my first time attending, I'm looking forward to it!

    I have been waiting for a meeting like this one. I have been developing in Java and PHP/SQL, for about 3 years to land a programming position. Would like to hear how to land my FIRST PHP job.

    For the record, out of respect to our host (Underground Elephant) please do not try to recruit on their premises. They too are hiring and go above and beyond by providing us the space and food for our events.

    I can appreciate those of you looking for developers. Please look at our job listings page to have your position listed. It's very reasonably priced in my opinion. And any money collected is not used personally, and will only be used for our group in the future.

    Looking forward to learning and meeting others in the industry!
