This week's guest is Colin Reposa, VP of Resource Management from Syrinx Consulting. Colin's job is to match up technologists with the needs clients have for building teams. It sounds simple on paper but there is a lot to doing it right! Colin talks about the evolution of job boards (and why he rarely uses them nowadays), getting an employer to allow you to work remote, and how contract-to-hire has become more popular and more possible than before.
