As a technical recruiter I spend a lot of time reviewing resumes for both internal positions at Isos Technology and on behalf of the clients we support. In my prior life, I was a technical manager with staffing responsibility for infrastructure support teams at several data centers in the US, Europe and Asia. As a […]
