03/12/02 RMIUG Meeting
- The Tech Job Search
The Tuesday, March 12th meeting of the
Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG)
will feature a panel discussion called "The
Tech Job Search - Status and Strategies
for 2002." Join us as our panelists discuss
and help us understand the current job market
and suggest strategies for success. As always,
plenty of time will be allocated for interactive
Q&A, so bring lots of questions (and maybe
a few business cards and resumes ;-).
Terrie O'Connell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
is an experienced career counselor and owner
of Fenix Coaching in Denver. She will present
her "Top 10 ways to increase results out
of your job search efforts." Terrie's local
Job Search Support Groups have been popular
with Boulder and Denver job seekers and
were featured in the Daily Camera this week
(see link below).
David Jared (email@example.com)
will be speaking from the job seeker's perspective.
Most recently, David worked as a Senior
Java Developer. He has been job searching
for two months and is seeking a Java programming
position at a small technology startup.
He will share his experiences from the front
line of job searching.
Jenny Shedd (firstname.lastname@example.org
), Account Executive with MicroStaff Corporation,
will discuss her experience from the recruiter's
standpoint. Jenny, who has worked both inside
an organization and at an outside agency,
will be sharing her views on the market
today and giving inside perspectives on
the recruiting and hiring process.
In addition, we may be joined by a hiring
manager from a local technology company
who will be describing the job market from
the company's perspective.

The meeting is Tuesday, March 12th from
7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start
for refreshments and informal networking).
The meeting will be held at The National
Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850
Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located
on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up
the hill, right under the Flatirons. For
door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest
), click on Driving Directions, enter your
starting address, NCAR's address, and voila!
Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door,
and ask the guard to point you to meeting,
which is held in the main auditorium, right
off the lobby. The meeting is free and open
to the public, but we may pass the hat to
help defray expenses.
Our meeting location seats about 120 people.
That is usually enough room to accommodate
all attendees, but it's impossible for us
to predict how many people will show up
for any given meeting. Seating is always
on a first-come, first serve basis, and
in the event of more attendees than seats,
we won't be able to admit additional people
into the auditorium after all seats are
