Speaking to Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP)

On Monday August 1st I had the pleasure of speaking to a group of college students that all belong to the AITP.  I always enjoy talking to college students because they are always inquisitive.  They all want to know how to find jobs.  Unfortunately, that is a tough question to answer.  My response is usually to distinguish yourself from every other person, by obtaining a certification, doing some volunteering and joining organizations.  This will give you an advantage over the numerous individuals that will be graduating and beginning the job search along with you.

I spoke to approximately 50 students and many seem to be attentive and receptive to the presentation.  There was a mix of students, about half were IT students and the other half business students. 


Talk to you soon
