DDD South West 2022 is running on the 25th of June this year. They have announced that they are extending their Call for Talk submissions. They would love to encourage more women to talk at the event and are keen to encourage 1st time speakers. So check them out and if you fancy a chance to get up on stage, submit a talk here.
Writing a Resume (CV)
A lot of our members often look for support from people to review their CV’s and we are always happy to do it. We would like to point out that actually Linkedin has a lot of support on this and is worth taking a look at, especially if you are coming from another country as they often present CV’s differently based on the country. Whilst you can use the jobs page to look into things such as interview questions – you don’t have to pay as it’s got some great free examples. If you go to your profile, you can print your CV out directly by clicking on the ‘more’ butter and save it to PDF. However, there’s an even stronger tool which allows you to edit it directly and also gives you suggested keywords to add in (we played by typing in magician!)
If you are interested in any of our candidates please contact us at email@example.com to discuss. If any of you are looking for jobs then feel free to send us your requirements and we can put you on our candidate list.
Job(s) of the Week
There are some top jobs from our clients wanting to make a difference and ensure that they reach out to recruit a more diverse workforce. Please take a look and contact them if you are interested as often companies are open to discussing other openings with potential candidates also. For now, check out all of the jobs on our jobs board and get in touch if you want to reach out to our members at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DevOps Enterprise Summit 10th – 12th of May
The conference for leaders of large, complex organizations.
Great physical conferences have an incredible magic.
You learn from amazing talks, you’re surrounded by the best in the game, you find fellow travelers who face challenges similar to your own, and so much more. These often lead to lifelong relationships, and can even change your career.
I’d like to set your expectations that we’ll deliver this same type of magic in our virtual event, just as amazing as any of the previous DevOps Enterprise Summits we’ve run.
