In March, the RochesterWorks! Career Center held our first in a series of industry careers panels. The event was a great success! We had participation from a broad range of Information Technology (IT) experts. They gave insightful answers to many questions that job seekers have, including the following:
1. What abilities or personal qualities would make someone a good fit for the IT field?
2. What can mature workers do to be competitive in the IT field?
3. How important is it to have a college degree? Is a degree even necessary for someone with work experience?
If you missed the session, you can view a four-part podcast at http://www.rwvcc.org/index.php?option=com_hwdvideoshare&task=viewcategory&Itemid=7&cat_id=18.
Our next offering in our careers panel series will focus on Advanced Manufacturing. It is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20, at 9 a.m., at the RochesterWorks! Career Center. RochesterWorks! members may sign up online at http://www.rochesterworks.org/js_workshops_downtown.aspx. Pre-registration is required because seating is limited.
