Metro Detroit Jobs, News, Event Next Week and Updates for 5/9/2012

2

Yep, it’s almost that time.

Casual Networking event for Information Technology professionals (and with the IT Section of the Michigan Bar Association coming to play) next week at the Blackfinn.

Had a little bit of Star Wars fun on Friday, another Dating Corollary entry went live, and our Linkedin group has all sorts of rampant fun going on.

So let’s get started…

As always, first stop is our next event.  Thursday, May 17th.  Royal Oak. Blackfinn. Back room. 5:01 start time.

Details on our site: http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/ or out on LinkedIn: http://linkd.in/wTtPR7

Should be a good one, looking forward to seeing everyone there.

The Dating Corollary: Stop Trying To Change Me went live out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3528/the-dating-corollary-stop-trying-to-change-me/ and I’m sure there’s a little something everyone can relate to in there.

This past Friday was Star Wars Day (and if you don’t know that…just…go), and we had our own little tidbits for it over at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3526/may-the-fourth-be-with-you/

What’s going on in our LinkedIn group?  Oh, let’s see…

Russ still isn't speaking to me after I sent him this

Russ is trying to convince me that keeping 80,000 bees in his backyard is no big deal (http://lnkd.in/GdPYRZ), there’s a discussion going on about the Rise of the Brogrammer (http://lnkd.in/5MBVzg), another about a cool opportunity for recent college grads at http://lnkd.in/fsHEQF, some stunned disbelief that there really are some people that don’t want to tailor their resumes for particular jobs (http://lnkd.in/iC42p9), a cute little discussion about what LinkedIn would’ve been like had it existed in the 80’s…which, naturally, has evolved into “my geek cred is bigger than your geek cred” and “who had the smallest baud rate” (ever seen a size competition where you’re going for the smallest? didn’t think so, but it’s happening at http://lnkd.in/v2PXmu).

Good times.  Good times indeed.

Oh, and jobs.  Yeah, there are of course jobs in there http://www.linkedin.com/groups?careerDiscussion=&gid=91763 too.  Honestly, having way more fun with the discussions, but if you’re curious about jobs, here’s a few of what’s in there at the moment.  Oh, and if you’re either a tech writer or a Cold Fusion developer, let me know…I know some people looking for you.

    Love the picture of this Ancient Aliens “expert” guy (who has what I think is a Greek name I cannot pronounce). On the show, I find myself barely listening to what he says and just staring at the anti-gravity hairdo. He sounds smart, but then he gets up every morning and puts his hair together like that…I’m so confused!

      I knew you’d recognize him based on our chat 🙂
