“As an experienced technical recruiter I look at thousands of CVs trying to find graduates that stand out. My clients agree that the single best example is a graduate that has shown an interest above and beyond their formal education and has shown an interest in Open Source Software. I regard it as the surest indicator of a candidate’s passion toward their profession.

Personally I will ALWAYS look out for CVs from candidates that have an understanding of the OSS industry – to me it is the easiest way to get a head start in a career in software.”
