The Developers Guide to Effective Networking

The truth about the hiring process is that the best candidate on paper is not the one who gets the job.

Soo....who does?

When faced with two similarly skilled candidates, who would you choose? Greg, who you only know from the interview process, or Teresa, who was recommended by someone you trust and vouches for her abilities?
