I’ll be talking about social networking from a career perspective at the FITT lunch on 13 May in Sydney.
This is very topical now with the global financial crisis starting to hit Australia. Our personal & business networks will be critical, not only for staying in touch with people, but also for finding work.
In the past we sat down the Saturday newspaper and circled jobs of interest (or the Tuesday IT section of the Australian for the geeks). Now the job ads have moved online. But there are other avenues for job search, and social networks are a critical component in this shift.
There are also some important issues about boundaries between the personal and public, private and business that need to be considered.
Event details are on the FITT website, but the basics are:
Topic: How to make the Net work
When: 12:00pm – 2:00pm, Wednesday, 13 May 2009
