Updates, Jobs And Two Events Worth Checking Out

Updates, Jobs And Two Events Worth Checking Out

2

By now, you hopefully realize that we’re fairly up front and honest about exactly how we feel about most other networking events out there, as well as our outright hatred of job fairs.

So when we tell you that there are two events that might actually be worth taking a look at, hopefully that carries a little weight.  These two events are being put on by companies/recruiters that have been around with us for a long time now.  They’ve established their “cred” with us – they’re at most (if not all) of our events, they’ve hired people from our events, and we’ve gotten some great feedback about them from job seekers in general.  With those things in mind, it’s an easy sell for us to go ahead and give them a little love in return.

One takes place today (yeah, sorry, just playing catch up and finding out about it…) and the other is tomorrow.  Both are by invite-only, so get that resume brushed up and get your email client of choice burning in order to get in the door to these two events…

The first is taking place today.  It is put on by Modis (also formerly Ajilon), and here are some details:

Modis Hiring Event for Project Managers and Business Analysts
STARTS: Monday February 21, 2011, 03:00PM EST
ENDS: Monday February 21, 2011, 07:00PM EST
MODIS, Detroit office
3000 Town Center, Suite 2600
Southfield, MI 48075 US
http://www.modis.com

On January 1, 2011, Modis joined forces with Ajilon Consulting to create a true power-house in the field of IT Staffing. To celebrate this event, we’re hosting a hiring event for IT Project Managers and Business Analysts to introduce you to the new Modis and show you how our expanded resources can help you make exceptional connections with top tech opportunities. Refreshments will be provided.
This event is by appointment only, so please forward your resume to mike.shaw@modis.com. We will have one of our recruiters contact you to discuss the event further and schedule you to meet with us. We look forward to connecting with you!

So get in touch with Mike Shaw ASAP if you’re interested in attending.

The second is at Compuware, and takes place tomorrow:

Compuware Recruiting Open House
Compuware, the technology performance company, is hosting an Open House at its beautiful downtown
Detroit headquarters building. This event brings together Compuware Recruiters and Hiring Managers in a no pressure, no hassle atmosphere, giving qualified applicants the opportunity to investigate Compuware as a career choice and learn about the 100+ full-time openings available:

Global Delivery Organization: Java developers and Architects, Delivery Managers, Business Analysts, QA Analysts, Healthcare Informatics

Professional Services: Java developers and Architects, Project Management, Business Analyst, Quality Assurance, Healthcare

Technology: Java developers and Architects, Quality Assurance

Covisint: Java developers and Architects, Project Management, Quality Assurance, Healthcare, Operations

Interested candidates must email their resumes to OpenHouse@compuware.com and receive a confirmation to attend.

So, again, get those emails flying if you want to get in the door.

In other news, those of you who attended our Pink Slip Party Thursday night may have noticed that it was a little more scrunched and crowded than normal.  Wanna know why?  Read “Don’t Be That Guy – We Got Snookered!” out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/1358/we-got-snookered/ to find out.

Jobs?  Yeah, we’ve got jobs.  And LinkedIn is still working on the issues with the Jobs tab in groups to fix the issues with being able to view beyond the first page, so in the meantime, remember to keep an eye on our previous posts out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/category/news/ in order to view a lot more jobs than you can get to in the LinkedIn group right now.

On that note though, here are some that have come in since the Pink Slip Party event Thursday night:

Don’t forget that we’ve got our upcoming events that we hope you join us at. We’ve already heard from several companies that heard about this recent event too late to make plans to attend, but plan on making sure that they’re at future events, both casual and Pink Slip Parties. We look forward to seeing them, and you, at them.

We’ve got a casual networking event at the BlackFinn on March 10th. Another casual event down at Hockeytown Cafe on March 23rd (with a Red Wings game! Don’t forget the Red Wings game!)

And then our next Pink Slip Party on April 21st over at the Post Bar in Novi.
