Good news, Java developers: Everyone wants you

Posted in News on 28 January 2015

IT jobs site Dice.com stays flush with Java employment opportunities; security and .Net skills are also in high demand

Java, which turns 20 years old this year, is having no trouble staying trendy, at least in the job market, as the Dice.com IT jobs site cites Java as its most-requested skill.

More than 16,000 Java positions are open on any given day, says Shravan Goli, Dice president, in the company's January bulletin, and demand for Java is only heating up. "Java was named one of the Top 10 skills hiring managers search for when in the market for cloud candidates, according to our November report," Goli says. "And considering it's a basis for so many open source projects, demand for tech pros with this programming language [skill] doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon."

This week's bulletin echoes previous Dice.com findings, including a report from last spring and a recent InfoWorld search on Dice.com. The bulletin also reported that software developers/engineers are the top must-have for any company wanting to build new products or develop internal systems. "As technology evolves, these 'creators' are key to helping company systems stay current -- and companies know it," Goli says.

Unemployment for software developers/engineers in the third quarter was 2.6 percent, a bit shy of half the total national unemployment rate of 6.1 percent, Dice reports.

Security professionals also are in a good predicament, with plentiful security positions listed on Dice. "Dice job postings for security professionals are up year-over-year, with cyber security up 91 percent and information security up 48 percent. Companies need professionals who can help oversee and protect their proprietary information from misuse or prevent security leaks," Goli says.

Also in high demand: .Net professionals and sales professionals. "For companies still waiting or in the process of transitioning to a Microsoft services platform, a .Net professional is important to have in your back pocket," says Goli.

We have been led to believe that the IT jobs market and specifically contracts, haven’t been affected by the recession. It’s true it hasn’t faced the difficulties a lot of industries have, most notably construction, but there has been a significant drop in contract opportunities for a few years and some fluctuations recently.

For example, here at Hays, we saw a dip in the number of contract jobs registered in Q4 2013 and at the start of Q1 2014, but since then we've seen a steady rise of about 25pc more jobs available. Most of these opportunities are coming from the multinational market, as they have been for the past few years. If you were looking to work for an SME you might find it more difficult to find a contract role.

If you're in a permanent role and feel like a change, but haven't found the right long-term move, taking on a contract can help with the transition. Of course, one of the biggest bonuses of contracting is the money you can earn. The good news is we are seeing rate increases at renewal stage and even mid-contract. We saw 30pc more of these in Q1 this year, compared to last year.

Longer play

Another trend we are seeing at the moment is the actual contract durations are getting longer so there isn't the pressure and hassle of having to look for a new contract every couple of months. In some cases, renewals are for 12 months as opposed to the typical three to six months. Companies are looking for commitment from contractors to stay with them for the longer duration to ensure project deadlines are met and delivery guaranteed.

Business analysts are being offered very favourable rates of €350-€450 per day, depending on industry agile experience. However, we've seen business analyst roles with more than five years of experience being offered €400-€450 per day, compared to a permanent salary of €50,000-€55,000 for the same level. Salaries around Ireland are typically 10-15pc lower than in Dublin. Contractors in this area can afford to be demanding in seeking the right fit for them and the right technologies they want to work in.

In the project management world, we have seen offers from €400-€500 per day, as long as you have PM certification. Project managers must have the end-to-end delivery experience in various industries for most vacancies, as multinationals seek candidates to manage global projects. Citrix is a skill that is very much in demand at the moment; we have seen rates increase by at least 10pc in the last year.

Python skills in demand

Within development, there is an urgent requirement for Python contractors to work on legacy systems upgrade projects. The number of Python-related contract jobs is on the rise, with PHP developers being x-trained to make up for the lack of available candidates. Average day rates for Python developers are €400-€450 for actual Python experience, however, for PHP x-training to Python, rates are €300-€400. BI development contracts are currently being offered at €400-€500, while .NET developer rates are around €350-450.

We are starting to see a wave of junior-level development roles, where companies are looking for the "next generation" of techies, unusual for contracting. Rates here can vary anywhere from €250 upwards.

The first quarter has seen more contract roles in the Cisco and networking areas, 20pc more than we saw in Q3 and Q4 of 2013, due to companies upgrading their current infrastructure to meet today's demands.

These are just a few of the contract areas of IT where we've seen the most activity recently. If you are interested in any upcoming contract roles and their rates, or if you'd like more information on moving into contracting from a permanent role, speak to a specialist IT recruitment consultant. They'll be more than happy to give you some advice.

11 tips to make your video interview run smoothly

Posted in Tips on 26 January 2015

You've landed the interview of your dreams. It's for a remote job that pays more than you ever thought you could make working part-time (or maybe it's for that international gig you've been daydreaming of). In short, you are over the moon!

But the interview is over Skype and you are petrified. Of course, you'll try to look natural and you'll rehearse what you should say. But what if there is a terrible echo? Is it okay to join the interview sitting in bed in your room? (Where else will you find a background that hides your messy apartment!?)

You've got this. Read on for a list of absolutely everything to do, from your tech setup to "designing your set," to making sure you look and sound fantastic on your video interview.

1. Get headphones

If you do nothing else to prepare for a video chat, do this one thing: use headphones. An echo ruins a video chat, fast. And lags in connection and internet blips can easily create an echo, delay, or other sound disruption that can be lessened with headphones. People will forgive your video quality, but they won't forgive your sound. If the person on the other end can't understand what you are saying, you're in trouble!

So, dig up those headphones that came with your first iPhone, or buy a pair of cheap headphones with a mic. (For example, Skullcandy makes a pair for $20.) Your sound will be crisper, the risk of echo will be reduced drastically, and those sirens and dogs barking in the background won't get in the way of the great impression you're making on screen!

Note: even if you don't have headphones with a mic, regular old headphones will work to reduce the echo as well. A sketchy set of headphones is better than no set of headphones.

2. Download the necessary tech

Most video chat systems require time to download either an application or a plugin. Do a quick search of the technology that your video interview is using, and see what you need to prepare.

Two common (and free!) platforms to use are Google Hangout and Skype. There is a quick plugin for Google Hangout that requires a browser restart (download here), and an easy application download for Skype (find your version here). There are hundreds of other video platforms that you could use, such as Cisco WebEx and GoToMeeting, so setting aside 15 minutes before your interview to make sure you have the right tech downloaded will ensure you are prepared!

3. Test your Internet

Being on a video chat requires solid, fast internet speed. Starbucks Free WiFi just isn't gunna cut it. Test the internet speed at the location where you are going to be joining the video interview by running a free test at speedtest.net. Google recommends an upload and download speed of at least 4 Mbps for a solid video connection.

Also, wireless internet signal can fade in and out. If you have an ethernet cable handy (they usually come free with your internet router or you can purchase one on Amazon for less than $10), plug it in to ensure you have a steady connection.

4. Check your sound inputs and outputs

Do a quick check of your sound settings to make sure everything is set correctly. Every video chat system has slightly different settings, but most will default to "built-in audio," which means the speakers and microphone on your computer. If you are using headphones and there is an option to set to your headphone audio (and microphone) instead, click it!

On Skype, you can try speaking and watch the audio bar rise and fall with your volume.

If you are using Google Hangout, try playing a test sound to make sure you can hear in your headphones.

5. Plug in your charger

Video drains your battery more than nearly any other program you can run on your computer. If you are taking your video interview using a laptop or tablet, charging it to 100% is a great idea. An even better idea is to have your laptop plugged in! Sort through your closets and find an extension cord if you need it so that you can be in the best position and not run out of juice in the middle of your call.

6. Design your "set"

Actively think about setting up what is behind you in the shot for your video interview. As executive recruiter Jennifer Johnson shared, being in a big room and having too much depth behind you can be distracting. It's best to position yourself a few feet from a wall, and have one or two tasteful decor components in the background. For example, a painting, a plant, or an organized bookshelf. Imagine meeting with the CEO of a huge company, and think about what how their desk is positioned: try to create the same setup for yourself. A white wall absolutely works, but if you have the time to "design" your set, it can certainly boost the impression you make!

7. Bring your camera to eye level

"It looks like I have a double chin!" That was Laura Belgray's reaction when we started to set her up for her fantastic Skillcrush webinar. You know what she's talking about: you look down at your laptop, while your chair has you perched up high, and the camera hits you at possibly the least-flattering angle of your neck you've ever seen.

Prop your laptop up so that you are looking at the camera at eye level, instead of down. Use a few textbooks, a pile of magazines, or even a rectangular tissue box to set your laptop up a few inches on your desk. It makes you look relaxed and composed, is a more flattering angle, and saves you from neck cramps.

8. Light from the front

A cardinal mistake of newbies on video interviews is to have light shining from the background. If you have a big window with a view, why not show it off?

Doh! You want the (spot)light on your face, not on the background! Think about getting your school pictures taken (I know, I know, terrible memories of braces. But bear with me on the analogy...). Where did that huge, blinding flash come from? Directly in front of you! So when you setup your video interview or chat, think about your school pictures and place your lighting in the front.

Natural lighting is best, so face towards a window if you can. If you are in a darker room, or you are getting on video chat in the evening, find a lamp that you can plugin and place about a foot in front of your laptop to give you some good lighting. (Just relying on the lighting from your laptop might give an eerily creepy glow.) If you have the time, take the extra step and take away, turn down, or turn off the lights behind you, as well.

To show you just how important light can be for the professionalism of your set, I took a few screenshots so you can see how Google Hangout responds to light. Which one do you like best?

With the focus adjusted, you can see me on camera, but I'm a little fuzzy (almost ethereal!?) because of the light behind.

Aha! The light coming from the window in front of me makes for a crisp, clear, and professional video chat image.

9. Check yourself out

Before you go live, make sure to check that your video camera works and that you look great on screen! The easiest way to test how you look is the audio settings in Skype. Once you open up Skype, click "Preferences" from the menu and open up the Audio/Video tab. Your camera will turn on and you will see yourself!

If you don't have access to Skype, there's a great workaround for testing out how you look on Google Hangout. Pop into Google Calendar and open up a meeting invite. There is an option to join by Video Call (see the bottom field in the screenshot below). Click that, and you'll open up a Hangout with yourself.

10. Do a test chat

The best way to know that everything will work correctly is to do a test run! Try out the technology you are using in a test call before your interview or chat starts. Setup everything as close to the way you will do it on interview day to make sure you have all variables under control.

Quick tip: haven't talked to your roommate from college in a while? Instead of giving her a call by phone, see if she's up for jumping on a video chat! You get to test your sound and audio so you feel confident that it works, and catch up with a great friend while you're at it.

BONUS!

11. Think solid + bright

Bright colors look amazing on video. Avoid wearing stripes, paisley, and the like, as the detail can come across as fuzzy and distracting on video. (Ever notice how the best dressed at Hollywood awards shows are usually the solid, bold colored dresses, and the outfits that crash and burn are often patterns?). Particularly outstanding colors for camera include scarlet red, emerald green, and royal blue. Pick your favorite!
