Hacking the Job Market: Socially Engineering Hiring - Josh More
There is a lot more skill in the security community than is reflected in the jobs we can get. Most people are limited not by technical skills or even soft skills necessary to do well in a new job, but because landing a job is a different skillset than keeping one. Thus, good people are stuck in dead end jobs while unethical incompetents bounce from job to job, increasing their profile and salary with each hop. It's time to change that.

Fortunately, while we live in a world where personal data is out of control, that applies to prospective employers as well as ourselves. It's time to turn the world's proliferation of data to our advantage. This presentation explains the job hunting process through a hacker's lens. It discusses why the most commonly followed models fail and how to better approach the search. It covers deciding to leave your current job, researching new possible job opportunities, targeting your new boss, controlling the job interview process and negotiating your new compensation and the departure from your current job.
