I sent you my resume a while ago. Should I send it again?

Yes, please do.  It’s been a while, and it’s always good to get them into the hands of the recruiters again to be recent.  Plus, new recruiters are always joining the group and planning on coming this time around, and it’s a good idea to get your resume into their hands as well.  Just send it to contact@ITinTheD.com, and we’ll take it from there.  However, there’s a caveat to that – if you know you’re not coming to the event, please, don’t send us your resume.  Just don’t.  We’re not a resume forwarding service.  The whole point of sending your resume into us for distribution out to the recruiters is so that they can be at least vaguely familiar with you – who you are, your name, and what you do – before you (hopefully) get a chance to speak that night in-person.  Sending a resume into us for distribution to people that you’re not going to meet pretty much goes against the grain of our entire group.  We want you to be more than a file in someone’s inbox, we want you to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with the recruiters face-to-face so that you can form a relationship with them.
