Professional Development Boot Camp Workshop
Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
We now live in a global market, where your co-workers can live half way around the world. It has been a growing trend over the last few years for companies to outsource their IT jobs to off-shore resources. This is why you will need more than your technical skills to differentiate yourself from the global competition. Unless you are Bill Gates, you will need an edge to stay valuable.
Today’s businesses are looking for IT professionals that can communicate their ideas effectively in written and visual form; know how to network in professional environments; have a solid on-line and off-line presence (brand) and technical know-how. In short, they are looking for well-rounded IT leaders.
