If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

While the Apple development community in Australia has been getting together regularly since before iOS was released, Android developers have been mostly tasked with figuring things out for themselves.

About a year ago, we met with Android Australia to raise this issue and offer our help to host a monthly, Android-specific event. Since then, we’ve had 31 talks, visits from Google evangelists and giveaways such as BLE beacons, Google IO swag, educational books from O’Reilly and Github stickers. Our numbers have increased from a humble 16 at our first meetup to over 50 at October’s event.

Last week, I gave a lightning talk about what employers want. It was mostly some tips and recommendations to increase your chances of getting that job that you want to apply for or just making your online profile more attractive to prospective employers. Essentially, it came down to these two things:

The slides from my talk can be found here.

If you are interested in giving a talk at one of the Android Australia events, get in touch with Georgina on g@lookahead.com.au. The next meetup will be on 2nd December at King St Brewhouse, Darling Harbour.
