As U.S. executives increasingly see IT as a commodity, how do you hold on to your job? In a follow-up to the popular October 2005 Software Development NetSeminar with Dr. Ron Hira, IEEE-USA.s vice president for career activities, this 90-minute interactive conversation with career maven Chad Fowler will give you the ammunition to avoid the shock of seeing your position outsourced to cheaper climes. Fowler, author of My Job Went to India (Pragmatic Programmers, 2005), offers 52 ways to navigate the global job marketplace, with tips ranging from choosing the most valuable technical and business domain skills to how to advertise your accomplishments internally and externally. Don't miss the opportunity to pose your questions live to Fowler, an application architect, Ruby programming language expert and author with a keen interest in awakening developers to ways they can elevate the visibility and value of their profession.
The net seminar is at 9AM PST. Good lunch break material on the East coast. Hope to see you there.
