Howdy cowboys and cowgirls! I’ve been in Houston for a week and will be here for another week – its been a blast. I’ve eaten enough Mexican food to last me the entire year (not really, I’d eat it every day if I could), and love the Houston weather vs. the Utah winter.
I’ll be at a couple of public forums and would love to invite you… the only requirement is that you come and introduce yourself to me! I am also doing a couple of closed-door meetings and would love to hook up with career coaches, recruiters, HR specialist, career counselors, etc. If you know of anyone in that category that lives in Houston please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org (an e-mail introduction would be better :)).
Wednesday – Jan 3 – 9am – I’ll be presenting at the Between Jobs Ministry – this is a group that has been holding meetings for over 20 years to provide networking and job search help. I’m excited about this opportunity and understand there might be a $2 cover charge. Info about where can be found at this Between Jobs Ministry link. Note that I will not be doing a demo of JibberJobber (you may have heard of my job search tool? Its free!) but I do have a presentation that I’m preparing that I’m pretty excited about!
Wednesday – Jan 3 – 6pm – I’ll be meeting with fellow blogger Daniel Sweet (of the FRACAT blog) to host a very informal networking session at Jillian’s restaurant. Daniel says I’ll be doing a short presentation – you can count on it being VERY SHORT but I hope to make it inspirational! Click over to Daniel’s blog for details (and a suggestion on what to order).
I’ll also be in Auston/San Antonio Thursday/Friday (Jan 4/5) and would love to hook up with you. I’m meeting with my favorite Austin bloggers (Thom Singer, Liz Handlin, Scott Ingram and maybe Scott Allen — doesn’t that sound fun??) and then hope to hit some career/HR professionals. This will be a cozy group but if you are dying to chat with these elite folks shoot me an e-mail 🙂 Again, if you know of anyone that I should meet with please introduce us via e-mail.
Here’s to an excellent 2007!
