For many years, researchers who study those who make successful job transistions report that “personal contacts” were critical to the success of their search. Career Columnists regularly recommend NOT waiting until faced with the next Career transistion to start building the relationships that make the contacts “personal”. Social Networking web sites are providing new ways to get and stay connected.
An overview of two of these sites, Linked-In and Facebook will be presented by local IEEE members, along with activities to enhance the discussion at tables.
Bring a stack of your business cards, and join us for a fun evening and make some new friends.
Networking Activity: led by Will Lumpkins
Will is Director of Engineering at Pragmatics Technologies in San Jose, and is the President of the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society, as well as an advisor for the IEEE Santa Clara Valley Consumer Electronics Chapter. His interests include Science Fiction, and Games.
