Updates and Jobs for 12/1/2010

Welcome to the unofficially official “Oh my god…it’s December!” weekly update from  The snowflakes are flying, people are driving four miles an hour and swerving like they’re desperately trying to avoid a toddler playing in traffic…yes, December has indeed arrived in Michigan.

As 2010 comes to a close, we’re finalizing plans for all of the events next year…and I swear, we’re really, really finalizing our December event.  It looks like it’ll be the 3rd week of the month (so about two weeks from now), but the location is still TBD since we’re trying to make sure we don’t want up either shoe-horned in the front of a bar, unable to identify each other…or crammed into a closet somewhere like a bunch of sardines.  So, we’re “finalizing”.

We’ve got a lot of jobs, as well as a few interesting discussions going on in our LinkedIn group…

…so you really should stop by to check things out on a regular basis.

For jobs, here’s a good sampling of what’s posted right now:
