Meeting Name: September CITPG Meeting
Meeting Date: 9/18/2017
Meeting Times: 5:30pm-8:30pm
Location: Redmond Room
Meeting Description:  

    Tell your friends starting on the path to, or embellishing, their IT careers to register for our September Meeting!

Planning an  IT Career, presented by Shannon Lowder!

     Build the plan, follow the plan, complete the plan.  These are the steps I teach my scouts on their path to Eagle.  These same steps apply to a career in IT today.  Few people take the time to formally build a plan to get them from where they are to where they want to be.  In this session, I’ll push you to consider all the aspects of your career, not just the nine to five work, but also your networking, branding, and advertising of your career as a business.  At the end of this session, you’ll be equipped with everything you need to start building your plan.

      For over 15 years Shannon Lowder has been spotting patterns and learning ways to work smarter instead of harder. He started with development and moved into database administration. As Business Intelligence became a greater demand, he moved into SSIS, SSRS, and SSAS development. After founding a startup six years ago, he finds himself a data platform consultant and  Biml Hero who can be found blogging, presenting and mentoring others through the Professional Association for SQL Server and the Boy Scouts of America. In those few times you don’t find him within three feet of a computer, he’s building something with wood, stone, or stained glass.

    There will also be networking, food, recruiters, and door prizes.

More to come later.
