The Tech Job Search

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 (coachterrie@hotmail.com) 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 (dajared@yahoo.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 (jshedd@microstaff.com ), 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 (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), 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 filled.

RMIUG appreciates the ongoing support from XOR Network Engineering (http://www.xor.com ) for administration of RMIUG's electronic discussion lists & web site. Thanks also to our new sponsor MicroStaff (http://www.microstaff.com ) for sponsorship of refreshments for our group. Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet- related Product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.
