Thanks for sharing these tips, Sam. You remind recruiters:
“Since this is a layman’s guide I couldn’t put every single recruitment tip I know in but these few should get you well on your way.”

Recently, Incapsula released a salary survey (with some additional insights) from 400+ DevOps they surveyed. Notably, they admitted:

The same shades of meanings probably exist for recruiters, too, so having a heads-up as to how DevOps view themselves (and what they’re being paid in those positions) will strengthen recruiters’ positions.
