Networking Event Tonight! Updates and Jobs for 9/16/2010

It’s time for another casual networking event for professionals in and around the Information Technology Industry to get together, have a drink, relax, expand their network and maybe even find a new job or someone to hire into a new job.   It looks like we’re going to have recruiters (from several new companies as well as some of the usual suspects) looking to hire .Net, Oracle, Java, front end, Cold Fusion and SQL developers, along with Project Managers, Business Analysts, and just about every other kind of job in the IT industry.  If you’re looking for a job, or even if you’re just looking to expand your network, really hope to see you there.  After all, you wouldn’t want to be Lazy Job Seeker Guy, would you?  Didn’t think so.

So, come on down to the back room of the BlackFinn in Royal Oak tonight at 5:00.  If you need directions or further information, you can check out…

The event listing on

The event listing on our site:

…and you know who you won’t find at our events?  The subject of our latest Don’t Be That Guy, Multi Level Marketing Guy: or at least if you do find MLM Guy at our events, you have our word that they’ve snuck in, and please find one of the three of us immediately so that we can have them bounced.

The other recent addition to our DBTG entries is Circular Recommendation Guys,, and even though they’re a little harder to uncover and require a little investigative work on your part to identify…we think you’ll agree that they’re also no asset to the networking scene.

We’re (finally) finalizing plans for the rest of the year, and hope to have all sorts of new locations announced shortly for our events as we move closer to 2011.

And, of course, jobs.  As I mentioned earlier, we’re starting to get more and more new recruiters and direct-hire companies showing up both in our LinkedIn group and at our events.  After an interesting conversation that I wound up having with a few of those folks, I mostly understand now why they’re not always posting their jobs for general distribution and relying more on making connections directly – they don’t want to get flooded with requests by vendors to fill their requirements when they’re looking to bring people in directly.  See?  There’s a reason why I mentioned the DBTG: Lazy Job Seeker up above – if the folks looking to hire people can take the time out of their day to show up, and you’re looking for a job…well, I think you get the picture.

So where are these jobs anyway, you may ask?  Here’s a good look at what’s out there currently.  But you already know that, right?  Because you’re one of the smart ones that hits our LinkedIn group on a regular basis and checks out the job posts for yourself, right?  Right.

Well, let’s just go ahead and do this anyway, for the sake of those that might be new and haven’t picked up on that yet. 😉
