Casual Networking Event tonight!
Hey folks, don’t forget that there’s a casual networking event tonight in the back room of the BlackFinn in Royal Oak. Looks like there’s going to be a pretty decent turnout, so we look forward to seeing everyone there. For details about tonight’s event like directions, etc., hit the LinkedIn event listing: http://events.linkedin.com/May-ITintheD-org-Social-Happy-Hour/pub/297546 or on our site at http://www.ITinTheD.com/356/may-happy-hour/
Speaking of our site, two new blog entries have gone live:
– Greedy Networking Guy: http://www.ITinTheD.com/617/greedy-networking-guy/
– It’s All About Perspective: http://www.ITinTheD.com/631/its-all-about-perspective/
And I suppose let’s not forget about jobs. Yet again, quite a few gigs posted in our LinkedIn group (http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=91763). To make life easier, we’ve added a “Job Board” link on the ITinTheD.org website that will take you right to it if you’re having problems getting there.
So what’s out there currently?
– System Consultant
– GE alone posted about a dozen jobs including architects, software engineers and more
– Ajax Developer

…and seriously…many, many more are out there.
As a tip, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve posted this response to people under a job posting…so hopefully being a little up-front about it will help: don’t post responses to job listings. Almost every posting includes the details on how to contact the recruiter, HR staff or hiring manager directly – take advantage of that. Follow up with them directly and get yourself connected!
And, again, look forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s event at the BlackFinn!
