A Plethora of Postings, News, Jobs and Updates for 4/11/2012

I’m nearly giddy with anticipation…we’re just a week away from our casual networking event at Tipsy McStaggers.

We’ve had a few blog entries go live since last week’s update.  You know, some light reading material to keep you occupied while you’re waiting for Thursday the 19th to get here.

A self realization about why I wear Red Wings jerseys all of the time.

Instructions on how to categorize your network…in the context of a bachelor party.

More lessons from a child’s toy.

A starting point on looking at the similarities between dating and networking.

More fun and excitement in our LinkedIn group.

All kinds of good stuff.  So, to the details we go…

But, as always…you know how it goes.  Our next event is first up.

Thursday, April 19th.  5:01pm.  Tipsy McStaggers.  Warren.  Casual networking event.

It’s going to be a good time, hope to see you there.

Details are available out on our site at http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/ or on LinkedIn at http://linkd.in/A0x8N0

And while you’re waiting for that to get here…how about some networking hints and tips to get you ready for it?

Like the dawning realization that I had about something that I’ve been doing subconsciously for a long time.  Wearing Red Wings jerseys when I go to random new places.  Want to know why?  Check out The Jersey Initiative over at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3327/the-jersey-initiative/

Next up…we’re always telling you that should be carefully building your network right, but then realized that we don’t really give you the criteria to determine “right”.  Well, now we have.  Hop on over to The Bachelor Party Hypothesis at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3316/the-bachelor-party-hypothesis/ and read.

And then we have (yes, I know, I get it…I had a mental overload this week and it all came flying out…deal with it) another adventure with me, kid’s toys, and analogies about networking.  See that teaser?  That’s why I’m not in sales.  Anyway, read Lessons From a Child’s Toy 2 at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3297/lessons-from-a-childs-toy-2-learn-harder/

But wait – there’s more!  How long has it been since you’ve thought about Chuck Woolery and the show Love Connection?  Too long!  I know, right!  Well, good thing we’re here for you with The Dating Corollary over here at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3361/the-dating-corollary-introduction/

Needless to say, there’s plenty of reading material out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/blog/ to keep yourself busy.  Have at it.

If you’re in the market, you might want to check out an open house at Genesis10 that’s taking place…ummm, well, now actually.  And tomorrow.  Details available out at http://www.ITinTheD.com/3356/genesis10-open-house-event/

So how about that LinkedIn group?

Discussions (and there are some good ones) are happening at http://www.linkedin.com/groups/ITintheDorg-Detroit-Networking-Events-IT-91763

Jobs from recruiters in our group can be found at http://www.linkedin.com/groups?jobs=&gid=91763

I think we’ll take a break this week from dumping all of the jobs into the weekly update.  You have the link.  You know where to find them.  Go nuts.  There’s already enough reading material here to keep you busy…no sense piling on.

Hmmm.  The event next week.  The blog entries.

I think that’s it for this time around.
