“It was the best of times…it was the worst of times…”
So, you have two articles out there in the wild today…and then some perspective from people out there running the gauntlet.
On Detnews.com, you have an article about how firms are looking outside of the state to fill jobs here now. Also today, you have a Computerworld article that talks about how huge the demand is for IT talent right now in metro Detroit.
So then why, when I’m talking with people at a Michigan Works office this morning…all unemployed, all Information Technology professionals, most of whom had an experienced background…why are they telling me that the IT market sucks?
The Lions are 3-0. The Tigers won their division.
Anyone else starting to read Revelations? No? Just me?
We killed off one of our upcoming events, but still have plenty coming in the next few months, and so let’s just go ahead and dive in while I’m waiting for the NHL pre-season to end and the regular season to begin…

No, not because I’ve been drinking before sitting down to write it, but simply because we have an awful lot of things going on that involve alcohol in some form or another. We’re apparently starting to take that “…one beer at a time” thing more seriously these days.
There’s an Octoberfest event this weekend you might want to check out, we’ve got our Mini-Social and Party Bus Tour coming up on October 6th along with a casual networking social event taking place on October 20th, and then something actually not beer/drinking related (at least not initially…but you know us, we’ll find a way to warp it to our needs…) is the DevDay conference coming up that you can get a nifty discount code for just be stopping by here and reading…oh, problem solved. It’s in the Compuware building, where Hard Rock Cafe is. Now to figure out how to bend TedxDetroit to our collective will next week…
Phew. Seems like a lot, huh? Oh, we haven’t even finished yet either…but let’s go ahead and get through some details so that we can move on to other things…
