This is a presentation about the technical hiring landscape 2015, focusing on the Nordic Region. It discusses three areas:
1) Stack Overflow's Developer Hiring Landscape 2015
2) Five common terms that recruiters use in job listings, how developers interpret that and advice on what you can say instead
3) Seven tips for recruiters on how to reach, attract and engage with developers.

  • You can try to use this service ⇒ www.HelpWriting.net ⇐ I have used it several times in college and was absolutely satisfied with the result.

  • I can definitely recommend a website that really helped me with my essay. I found out it was due the day before I had to submit it. Went into full-on panic mode. Worst experience of my senior year by far. It’s called HelpWriting.net. The quality of the writing is passable but the completion rate is super quick. You get to pick your own writer to do your stuff and that’s also a big bonus.
