Casual Networking Event TONIGHT: News, Jobs and Updates for 10/18/2012
Yeah, I know…these usually go out on Wednesdays.
I was busy yesterday. It happens.
I was out in Lansing doing another presentation of The 10 Commandments of Networking to a Shifting Gears group of folks…so I have a good excuse, honest!
And we’ve got a lot to get through, so let’s get to it…
Even though we’ve got a lot of ground to cover, as always we start with our next upcoming event.
Our next casual networking event for information technology professionals here in metro Detroit is tonight and it takes place at Tipsy McStaggers in Warren. 5:01pm start time.
Details are available on our site: http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/ or on LinkedIn http://linkd.in/P0pRyr, Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ITintheD), Meetup (http://meetup.ITinTheD.org), or any of our other “presence” pages or event listings around the web.
Should be a really good time, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone there. Yes, there are plenty of televisions in the bar, and I’m sure the Tigers game will be on for us to keep an eye on.
And yes, they have karaoke later in the evening. Hang around that late at your own risk.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Speaking of “everyone”…it’ll be interesting to see how many people show up, since our site’s been taking a heavier number of visitors and readers than usual after I went in-studio with Blaine and Allyson on 96.3 wdvd during their morning show’s “Back To Work” segment.
What? You missed that? Well, good news. You can catch the audio over here: http://www.ITinTheD.com/4178/audio-from-10152012-96-3-wdvd-back-to-work-broadcast/
I would really recommend you click it and take a look at it.
We might even see a few new faces from yesterday’s Shifting Gears group as well. As I mentioned at the start, I was out in Lansing yesterday giving a presentation of The 10 Commandments of Networking – http://www.ITinTheD.com/2697/the-new-and-improved-10-commandments-of-networking/ – and had a great time. It’s always cool to get up and share who we are, what we do, and the basics of networking that we take for granted but so many people have never been exposed to.

What else is going on? Well, we’ve gotten our bigger event finally coming to fruition. 3/13/13. Downtown. Seriously getting geeked about it already, and you can read a bit about it here: http://www.ITinTheD.com/4158/mark-your-calendars-31313-is-booked/
And of course there’s stuff going on in our LinkedIn group – http://www.linkedin.com/groups/ITintheDorg-Detroit-Networking-Events-IT-91763. Like a chat about how bad (and stupid) it is to lie on your resume over at http://lnkd.in/qqHXjd and other topics you might be interested in.
You’re in the job market? Well, you probably ought to check out these postings – http://www.linkedin.com/groups?careerDiscussion=&gid=91763 – by recruiters in our group who come to our events. You know, like the one tonight.
Well, I think that’s enough. You’ve got links galore, and you know all about our event tonight.
See you there!
Bob, Dave and Jeff
