I'm looking for some advice on other places beyond libraryland where I
might recruit a developer for the new repository service we are developing
at the Metropolitan New York Library Council.
About a week ago I posted a job for a Digital Repository Developer on the
code4lib job board.
When I posted it here, I hit all (or most) of the other usual or
appropriate spots... web4lib, lita, drupal4lib, etc. And yay, I do indeed
have some resumes already, so *thank you* to those communities!
I wonder though: does anyone on the list have experience (good or bad) or
stories to share about recruiting from other places outside our immediate
professional circles... CS programs, code schools, etc? I'm really
committed to putting in the time and energy to scour the earth to find the
right fit and to build a happy, healthy team for this initiative.
Thanks for your thoughts-
