WTIA Event & Job Website

Do your career prospects even REMOTELY relate to the world of technology?   If so, do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself with the many useful offerings of the Washington Technology Industry Association (WTIA) if you haven’t done so already.  As the trade association for over 1,000 Washington State high-tech companies, WTIA is a clearinghouse of useful information, events, and resources related to the entire spectrum (e.g. software, mobile, Internet, hardware, etc.) of tech-related companies here in the local area.

Why is this subject on  my brain?  Because I’m actually delivering two speeches today on “Marketing Yourself Successfully” as part of the WTIA’s wonderful “Back to Work” event.  I’ve already got the first speech under my belt, in fact, and am just sitting here in the break room recharging my introvert batteries before I head out for round two.  If you weren’t able to attend this event, and were interested in the material presented, you’ll find a link to my slides here that you’re more than welcome to download and review — although you’ll miss out on all of my brilliant ad-libs and color commentary, of course… 🙂

Additionally, let me be one of the first to tell you about the brand-new WTIA Job Center that the organization has just launched, since this employment portal is likely going to be gaining a lot of steam in the months to come — and will undoubtedly emerge as one of the top sources of local technology industry jobs.  Right now, there are 178 open positions listed in the system, ranging from senior account executive to embedded software engineer, but expect this number to grow as the fine folks at WTIA continue to promote this hiring resource aggressively among their corporate membership.

Make sure you check out their Industry Directory, too.  It’s a terrific source for turning up technology company prospects, whether of the startup or gargantuan variety!
