Issue #463 - 2020-06-08 - Job search in hi-tech

This edition was made possible by the supporters of our cause.
Don't miss the next issue!


I like to help people solve problems with code and I like to help people advance in their career. So I had a webinar where I explained how I would use LinkedIn to make it easier to find a job, but that's just my point of view. A tech-person who has been self-employed for 20 years now.

So I thought it would be interesting to see the job market from the point of view of recruiters, head hunters, HR managers, and other people who do the hiring. I already had such a webinar in Hebrew and I have another one is tomorrow.

More interestingly, to you, next week I am going to have the first such event in English as well. I hope it will go well and many other webinars will follow. Check it out and register!.

I would also like to welcome back the job posts of Perl Careers at the bottom of this edition.

Oh and the Perl conference in the cloud is coming soon!

Enjoy your week!

Perl Jobs by Perl Careers

Why working as a Perl developer in Vienna is going to change your life

2020’s been a difficult year, worldwide. It’s time to reward yourself for getting through it by relocating to the world’s most liveable city for the second year running. Cheap rent, charming architecture, an incredible cafe culture, and a city that embraces its seasons

Goodbye, Winter Blues. Hello, 300 Days of Perl Sunshine! Perl developer job in Malta

Imagine a place known for its stunning Mediterranean coastline, famous for its festivals, and so welcoming that locals are often called “some of the nicest people in the world.” Now imagine that you can trade your current home base for one that’s chock-a-block with history, incredible cuisine, and postcard-worthy views around every corner.

Shopping, Skating, and Swimming – Is This Even Work? Perl developer in Dubai (sponsored work permit)

You can work anywhere in the world, so why not work somewhere world-class? Where better to spend your days (and nights) than a rapidly growing city known for having the planet’s only 7-star hotel, the tallest building in the world, and a shopping mall to put all other malls to shame. Did we mention it’s beautiful all the time?

Greenery and Go-Karts and Golf, Oh My! Perl job in Malaysia (sponsored work permit)

There are plenty of perks to living in a big city—the nightlife, tons of amenities, and transportation to get you from A to B—but big cities often mean concrete jungles without much green space. Not so in Cyberjaya; this tech-driven city has a huge park, and it’s situated right next to Putrajaya, which has parks, wetlands, and botanical gardens for all your greenspace needs.
