This is my 12th year of doing this kind of presentation... a bunch of slides and then an invitation to continue the conversation.

Frequent conversations I have had lately include (and bring what is on your mind):

What is the local job market like right now? Is this a good time to look for a new job? There have been a number of IT layoffs these past months... how do I play defense? The economy, where are we? Networking virtually, how to do it The economy… how I see it now and as the year progresses

Send your questions in advance =>

And every year someone asks, "Why do recruiters suck so bad?". I'll pull the curtain back on what it is like to be one now during COVID -19

All levels
