Looking at the journey of searching for a Django job from initial thoughts through to the first day. The first half of the talk is aimed at Django Developers moving between jobs but will include tips for first time Django job seekers too.

In part 2, I will switch to discuss the topic from the viewpoint of “How to hire a django developer” covering writing a job spec, interviewing/testing and positioning an offer to maximise your chances of making a great hire.
