    Hi folks

    This is just a provisional "heads-up" that at the committee meeting last night we are proposing to have a Job Night in March.

    This will aim to get recruiters and employers in IT together and hopefully help local IT staff given the current economic climate.

    I'll post some more details once it's all been finalised but it may be useful for those jobhunting or seeking a change who can make it to Bournemouth for the evening.

    Provisional date is the 19th March 2009.

    Pretty sweet mate! Well for those without jobs, generally though would be a good networking chance. Hows the job hunt going since we spoke at the pub.

    Yeh it will be a networking event as opposed to being aimed specifically at those jobhunting so why not come along ?

    As for me........ the jobhunt continues :rolleyes: :(

    I've attached some updated details of this event for those who can make it down to Bournemouth for a Thursday evening.

    We will need to gauge numbers so if you're intending to come perhaps let me know by PM a little nearer the time ?

    Thanks
