Today we have more job and process related goodness. First, Allan Kelly talks about the difference between scarcity and slack, particularly in the real of agile planning. It is definitely an interesting idea and one that I will be looking into. On Job Tips For Geeks, Dave Fecak talks about how engineers get found (or not) on LinkedIn. Remember, this is a look into the mind of a recruiter, so if you are looking for a job you should read that blog.
As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
