No… I’m not the guy with the trench coat asking if you want to buy the letter C, but I do want to make sure you’re in the know. 

Talking with head-hunters / recruiters / IT Managers out there and there’s one thing they’ve told me again and again. They look to hire professionals with personal skills when ranking candidates with equal knowledge and experience. Your personal skills and the time you take to invest in your career development pays off big time – it gives you the edge over your competition. It doesn’t matter if you’re lookin’ for the next gig, or just looking for some extra confidence in the job you are currently at – it just works.

Take the time – make the investment in yourself and in your career.

My team is committed to YOUR success. We’re running our “Ignite Your Career” webcast series starting in March, running every Tuesday until April 7th.  This series was extremely popular last time around and we’ve listened to your feedback asking us to bring it back again! 

We’ve designed this series specifically for technical professionals that are interested in developing their career. We’re once again partnered with CIPS to help ensure we’re bringing together experts from across the country from all walks of the ICT industry – developers, IT professionals and managers – in order to answer YOUR questions and share their insights.

This is the third Ignite Your Career series I’ve worked on and I have to say I love putting it together. We’re using the “radio talk show” format once again – nice and easy to listen to, no “death by PowerPoint” and interactive with the audience asking questions using the question manager. In fact – this year we’re taking it up a notch or two:

  • You can E-Mail your questions in advance to iyc@microsoft.com.
  • During the webcast you can join the Backchannel conversation on Twitter by using the #IYC2009 hash tag.
  • Simply tweet your comments, chatter or questions and include to #IYC2009 hashtag to have them bubble up for all to see. 

Main landing page can be found at http://www.microsoft.ca/ignite. You can check out the full details, schedule and episode topics from there. As we get closer – I’ll post some interesting tidbits about each episode on the blog.  I’ve also extracted the titles, dates and registration links below if you want to register right now!
