I’ve just had a confirmation email through that my session has been selected for DDD6.
A panel of experts will answer the audiences questions on the subject of recruitment chaired by Colin Mackay. This session is for you if you are looking for a job and want to find out what companies are looking for. You are trying to hire someone but don’t know what to look for. You have been burned in the past and don’t want to repeat the experience. You have a question about recruitment no one else seems to have an answer to.
There will be a question box on the day for you to post your questions, but if you want to email in advance, you can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions by email close at 23:59 on the 23rd November.
