The “Ignite Your Career” Webcasts Start Tomorrow!


What is Ignite Your Career?

Ignite Your Career is Microsoft Canada’s webcast series on making the most out of your high-tech career. Hosted by my co-worker Rick Claus (Senior IT Pro Advisor) and Shane Schick (Editor-in-Chief of IT World Canada), it’s a series who goal is to provide you with information to help you make the best decisions for your high-tech career and answers to your questions. For the next four Thursdays starting tomorrow, Rick and Shane will take to seasoned pros from the IT industry about various topics, ranging from where the industry seems to be heading to maintaining your skills portfolio to “marketing yourself” to becoming a better leader.  

You could call Ignite Your Career “platform-neutral”, as the topics covered apply to all developers and IT pros, whether or not they work with Microsoft tools and technologies. If you have a career as a developer or an IT pro, or a mix of the two, or if you manage developers and IT pros, this webcast is for you!
