Chronicles of an IT Job Seeker

Somebody said I should write a book about Careers in IT and how to succeed in this challenging job market. Maybe I will one day, but until then you'll just have to keep reading my blog posts to stay abreast of the latest happenings. Yeah, that's right, not only has the technology changed dramatically over the last few years, the format for resumes, interviewing styles and job search strategies have changed dramatically too.

Just in case you haven't heard, I was laid off my job in January and I'm still looking. So let me start this post with a short commercial a.k.a. my 20 second  elevator pitch. 

I know clearly which job I desire.

I'm an IT executive looking for a position in cloud computing, strategy & planning, enterprise architecture, project management, program management, PMO management, supplier management and IT service management.

The good news is that I've learned so much since I started job hunting and I'm anxious to share. Do you know the 5 steps to get from job seeker to employee and what employers look for each step of the way? It's called 12 Employer Expectations – 12 Rules of Etiquette and since I started following these rules my phone has been buzzing every day!
