Stack Overflow Jobs has been a staple for Developers looking for their next tech role as well as companies looking to hire technical talent. But like most good things, they've come to an end. They shared their news in a post outlining the timescale to be expected and which features would be lost (hint: all of them):
"On March 31, 2022, we will discontinue Stack Overflow Jobs and Developer Story. This includes all job listings, saved searches, applications, messages, recommended job matches, job ads, developer story, saved resumes, and the salary calculator."
And with the closure of GitHub's job board last year, we know you may be thinking "So what happens next?". Well, whether you're trying to get hired as a developer, or you're wondering how you can reach amazing candidates, we've got you covered here at hackajob. Here's our top tips for moving forward to ensuring you still get the outcome you hoped for.
If you're looking for your next tech role, here's what you can do:
