December is a month full of wonderful surprises and magic. But for us it was also filled with things to prepare, plan and do for our annual team building. Our destination? Given tis’ the season, we had to head out to the mountains. So we chose Păltiniș, a wonderful ski resort and a great winter destination for our team building weekend.

Exactly 2 years today Andreea Măjeri aka „The American Dreamgirl” as we like to call her, was joining the Human Direct family as IT recruiter. So yes, this called for a celebration, Human Direct style. But before we go into how we celebrated Andreea’s second year within the family, we want to say a few words about her so you get to know her better.

Why-IT-Companies-Resort-to-Counteroffers_b629cb09046021bb99c74813acbabd0d

Considering the great implications and the effects that this practice has on the parties involved, I believe that it’s important to look at this phenomena from multiple angles.

3-Soft-Skills-Every-Web-Developer-Needs_b629cb09046021bb99c74813acbabd0d

Beyond their code writing superpowers, developers are humans too. No, for real! And although a web developer job requires a certain technology stack and programming skills, there are others that go beyond what you know to do. And they are called soft skills or people skills and are more about attitude and character. In other words how you handle yourself and others at work.
