All of us take the time to work on other people's technology problems. Day after day we try with undying effort to save the world from all who would seek to destroy it. This can be a tough job which leaves you feeling spent. At the end of the day when you hang up that super hero cape, do you take some time for self reflection? Is this what you really want to be doing? Is the future so bright you have to wear shades, or do you not even have time to think about the future? Is IT Manager the only way up for you, or is there another way? Do you feel like you're capable of something more?
Make some time for yourself, and come join us for career night at the DFW SpiceCorps! We will have a panel of IT industry veterans talking everything career - where they came from, where they are now, how they got there, and how you have the power to choose your destiny. The panel will be moderated, but there will be plenty of time for audience questions. Come pick brains and learn the secrets of leveling up.
In addition to this, our very own Paul Mai will be taking head shots you can use to beef up your LinkedIn profile completely free of charge.
This meeting is unsponsored, so there will be no food and beverage provided. Feel free to bring your own. NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED.
This event is not sponsored or endorsed by the North Richland Hills Library or the City of North Richland Hills.
Park in the main library lot. The meeting will be held in the community room, which is on the right on the lower level as you enter the building.
Cool idea for a meetup.
Libraries are potentially really good venues for that sort of thing, except for the general lack of alcohol problem.
The meeting had to be rescheduled for 11/16 instead of 11/7. The library double booked the meeting room and had previously committed to using it for Election Day.
That's better for me, no idea what my schedule will be, that but that it more likely at least that I can make it.
Hopefully some Mango folks can come. I edited the description in Spiceworks to add the fact that we'll have a recruiter coming to share some tips on how to sell yourself to potential employers and beat the applicant tracking systems.
I won't have any idea if I can make it till the last second. Too much going on to predict with any reliability.
For those who could not make it, here's a post with the links to the recorded sessions from tonight - https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/2090834-dfw-spicecorps-11-16-2017-career-night.
