Great Discussions, Jobs, An Event Next Week and More – Updates for 6/8/2011

Okay, seriously, enough with the heat already.  In other news, Bob would like to take this opportunity to apologize to anyone who may have received “inappropriate photos” from him on Twitter, but will not be resigning his position with no matter what…

I’m kidding.


Anyway, we’ve got an event coming up next week at the Red Ox Tavern in Utica, Genesis10 has their own mini-career fair going on today and tomorrow in case you forgot, CloudDevDay is Saturday, we’ve got some pretty cool discussions going on in our LinkedIn group, and of course there are jobs posted there as well.

Let’s begin where we always begin…us.

Our event next Thursday out at the Red Ox Tavern in Utica is one of our casual networking events, and we’ve actually gotten quite a few inquiries from new (to us) companies that are looking to hire.  So, even though it’s not technically a Pink Slip Party event, I’d say it’s going to be one of our better events to meet new people, get some good information, and possibly find a new job while you’re there.  Naturally, you can find details out on our site or on LinkedIn

Speaking of Pink Slip Party events…yes, we know it’s been a few months since we’ve had one, and we’re working on details for the next one, rest assured.

On the job front, that aforementioned deal with Genesis10 is going on today and tomorrow, so get the details and make the call if you haven’t already done so.  They’re good folks.

Hopefully this unbearable heat will be gone by Saturday, because I’ll be downtown with a couple hundred fellow geeks at CloudDevDay…and I really don’t like heat.  There are rumors of a possible field trip over to a Roller Derby event afterwards…excellent.

We’ve got some pretty cool chats going on in our LinkedIn group you may want to check out.  Everything from a discussion of an article stating that college is a complete waste of time, a tool named RezScore to check out your resume, why your LinkedIn profile should closely match your resume…and more.  Check ’em out and dive in.

Also on the LinkedIn front…jobs.  Remember, you have to click into our group, click the jobs tab in our group, and then hit “career discussions” to see the jobs that people are posting directly in our group.  Some of which happen to be…
