October BDPA Chicago Chapter Program Meeting

It’s a candidate’s market: Are you ready to compete?


The theme of this meeting focuses on the current state of the IT labor market. The fact of the matter is that IT unemployment is at an all-time low, near 1% and there is a surplus of opportunities coupled with a shortage of workers. Supply and demand creates an advantageous opportunity for those IT professionals in the workforce that take the necessary steps to differentiate themselves from the competition.   

We will discuss the perspective nearly one half of American’s feel regarding the US unemployment rate and why it largely differs from the facts found by the country’s top economic experts.   

To better assist you, we will cover the following topics: 

 

  •          The unemployment rate (in IT) within Illinois
  •          Companies and industries are hiring
  •          How to differentiate yourself from the competition

 

Lastly, our guest speaker will discuss what the challenges are in hiring top talent within IT and their efforts to grow a more diverse workforce. We will also hold a Q&A session with a number of leaders within the IT community.

IT professionals in transition and those looking for a change are strongly encouraged to attend! RSVP
