A few helpful tips:
- Big data is sufficient. All those adjectives preceding “Big” are extremely, massively, extraordinarily, incredibly unnecessary (unless you want to write a big data rap song, in which case please use as many of these adjectives as you like).
- “Big data scientist with big data experience” sounds about as silly on my end as it would if you were to say it out loud… and you should try saying that out loud before you put it in an email cause it sounds pretty darn silly
- It’s generally a good idea to make sure the technology you’re hiring for has been around at least as long as the experience you’re hoping people have with it. You aren’t going to find anyone who has 10 years of experience working with Elasticsearch, Kafka, Apache Spark, etc.
- I am not “Looknig” to connect.
- I am, however, paying attention to details.
- So when you send emails to developers about how you exclusively focus on candidates in the Seattle area and then follow it up two minutes later with an email about how you exclusively focus on candidates in Atlanta…. odds are pretty good the people you are emailing will notice that (and if they don’t, trust me, you don’t want to hire them anyway).
