*brief e-mail defined:

  • A "brief e-mail" from a potential client tells us your hiring need and how to get in touch with you.
  • A "brief e-mail" from a potential candidate tells us who you are, how to reach you, something about your experience, what you are looking for, what geography you are open to, and your approximate salary/package. Please feel free to send (in the body of an email) your entire technical summary, including any and all buzzwords that might come up in a search. You can also cut and paste your resume into the e-mail provided it isn't more than three pages. That way we will be able to find you quickly.
