Casual Networking Event Next Week: Updates for 1/10/13
A few blog entries are out there for you.
And is it just me, or is this the longest…week…ever…
So we’re kicking off 2013 in fun and fabulous downtown Ferndale (I’ve been watching a lot of the Game Show Network lately…sorry) next Thursday night. Thursday, January 17th. The usual 5:01pm start time. Ferndale. Como’s. The upstairs private event room. Which has a private bar.
Details like the address, etc., are available on our site: http://www.ITintheD.org/index.php/event/january-casual-networking-social-2/, out on Meetup: http://meetup.ITintheD.org, and out on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ITintheD.
We’re looking forward to seeing everything there, and to getting 2013 kicked off with a great event!
Speaking of great events – have you picked up your tickets for IT in The D yet?
The hell are you waiting for?
Don’t Be That Guy (or Girl) – the one who waits until the last minute and then it’s too late because we’re sold out.
Though a really smart person might do a little homework first…just sayin’…
From a blog perspective, a while back I had an idea about how to deal with the abandoned buildings in downtown Detroit – http://www.ITintheD.org/index.php/3437/a-non-geeky-solution-to-the-abandoned-buildings-problem/, and I still think it has potential. (Laughably, so did Mayor Bing, apparently)
That Money Magazine article we’re in has hit newstands, and that’s discussed here: http://www.ITintheD.org/index.php/4797/sanity-check-i-am-no-hero/
While we hate the “everyone deserves a trophy!” mentality, we also aren’t fans of The HR Killjoy, either: http://www.ITintheD.org/index.php/3912/the-hr-killjoy/
Discussions? We have discussions. Jobs? We’ve got jobs.
Let’s start with discussions:
– What’s your take on behavioral style interview questions, and what’s the weirdest one you’ve ever gotten or used? http://lnkd.in/yVpWwA
– The always resurfacing “What your email address says about you” chat: http://lnkd.in/EcS7_6
– States taking steps to bar employers from asking for your passwords: http://lnkd.in/-2Nuwm
– 6 tech resolutions for the new year: http://lnkd.in/D82_he
– HP apparently hates networking: http://lnkd.in/cqtpuJ
The Job Discussions area of the group – http://www.linkedin.com/groups?careerDiscussion=&gid=91763 – is pretty well populated right now, too:
