IMO the career management rules for those in technology have changed – except that for many involved in recruiting and retaining technology folks, they seemed to have missed the memo. As an engineer who crossed over to the dark side (that would be HR and recruiting), I'll be talking about the "new rules" that you can use to go as far as you'd like to go in your career. New rules? How about "…forget the resume, show me your repo"? Or "…social media is not just for house-bound agoraphobes who have far too much time on their hands"? Or "…if you have to speak to a recruiter how to get them to pass you on to the hiring manager"?
