As a seasoned consultant, have you ever found yourself
talking to a recruiter who has been out of school for, say, ten
minutes. You have performed excellently for years, absorbing
new technologies like some people absorb sunshine - a consummate
professional. You describe your experience throwing out
some buzz words and the words drift off into the ether unrecognized.
You know that this person will be trying to sell your
skills to a Human Resources person, whose idea of IT is entering
data on a screen? You are asked questions that, to you,
seem like a teacher asking a first grader, "Yes, Johnie, I know
you can tie your yellow stripped shoelaces, but THESE shoelaces
have RED stripes. How much experience have you had tying
RED stripped laces? Do you think you are qualified to tie
these?" Feel a little helpless do you?
At DMC, we know that frustration. We are old
timer computer scientists who are not limited to acronyms and
software names to match up our talent with assignments.
We don't want to know so much what you have done in the past,
but how quickly you can move into the future. The past is
only a good predictor of the future if it shows you can learn.
None of us continue to stay at the same level.
We grow. We face new challenges. We learn new tools
and do excellently once again. If our abilities could only
be determined by what we did in the past, then we would never
work. We all started out with no experience at all!
We assume competence, not incompetence, and give you
the respect that your years in the field command. Your skill
is not in the tools that you use, but the ability to think and
solve. The tools you use can vary. After all, all
computers do essentially the same things. The only thing
different is the syntax.
We are an equal opportunity employer. We do not
discriminate in hiring. However, we take very seriously
our commitment to a high ethical standard. Openly immoral,
unethical, or illegal behavior that reflects on DMCons may result
in dismissal. Currently we hire primarily on a contract
basis. We pay on a 1099 basis, on a W-2 basis, or on a corp
to corp basis.
