I sat watching Dave the other night and there’s a bit in it where Kevin Kline simply states that he wants to give everyone in America a job that wants one. I’m not sure if our the MD of Microsoft, Gordon Frazer has seen this, but he’s just announced that we plan to get to 500,000 people into work by 2012 through an initiative called Britain Works
So how do we do that?
Hopefully this will grow to be much bigger than Microsoft and I have already had the SQL Bits organisers contact me about this to see how they can get involved. The various Microsoft user groups not only provide good free training, they are a great place to network to find and fill vacancies as well.
So if you have friends or family looking to get into IT, point them at the site and if you think you can help out then please contact me.
