SlideShare.net has a ton of great presentations in their original form. Gareth Rushgrove from DevOps Weekly pointed me to this one, and it’s a gem. I had seen this earlier in the week, but Gareth’s newsletter was a reminder that this is an important message.

Recruiters understanding roles and responsibilities is not just a problem in the DevOps Community, but one that is problematic in all industries where there are complex jobs descriptions. Recruiters are notorious for asking for things without understanding what they are asking for. I’ve seen requests for 10 years of expertise in an industry that is only 5 years old… that kind of stuff.

This slidedeck is a nice framework so that recruiters can have some idea of what DevOps do and what a reasonable request might be.
