1. AGENDA FOR TUESDAY, 4/5/11:
We'll begin with roundtable introductions. Simply give your name, academy/class, and where you're currently working (or seeking work). You're welcome to also talk about what's new in your world either personally or professionally. Particular attention will be given to anyone with networking needs such as those seeking job search assistance, referrals, advice, or the opportunity to disseminate business information.
Jason Clark (USMA '92) will speak on a topic he has titled "The DNA of Investing". Jason is a registered investment advisor who runs his own independent advisory firm. He will discuss investment scams and why a lot of very smart people seem to fall for them.
2. UPCOMING TUESDAY PROGRAMS:
4/12/11: TBD/Open Forum. This date is currently open. If you'd like to schedule a speaker or lead a discussion yourself, just let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. NEXT SACC CONFERENCE FOR JOB SEEKERS:
Many of you are aware of the Service Academy Career Conferences. Here is some info on their next event. Thanks to BizNet member Bob Fretzs (USAFA '71) for forwarding this item.
Are you ready for a new job? Transitioning out of the military? Moving around in the civilian sector? Curious about the current job market? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you need to join us in Washington, D.C. May 26-27, 2011, for our next Service Academy Career Conference (SACC). We expect more than 100 companies to attend the DC SACC–companies that are interested in meeting, interviewing and hiring Service Academy graduates. No matter where you are in the employment cycle, SACC is a great tool for connecting outstanding job candidates with hiring companies. This is a wonderful hiring event.
For all the latest information (including a list of currently registered companies) and to register to attend the conference, please visit www.sacc-jobfair.com and follow the links to the Washington, D.C. event.
If this SACC doesn’t fit into your plans, future SACCs are scheduled for 2011 in Seattle, Wash. (August 18-19) and San Antonio, TX (Nov. 17-18).
Have a great week.
