Blacks Gone Geek promotes awareness in the African American community by providing a forum to share and exchange knowledge within the Information Technology Industry. At Blacks Gone Geek our mission is clear: We want to promote career advancement for African Americans in IT.
Now that I'm an empty nester I get a chance to pursue some
topics just for fun. It's not all about the geek stuff anymore! LOL.
I sent out a blog post a couple of months ago on a few books
on happiness I recently read and liked. Now I tripped over a free course on
happiness and positive psychology that take the happiness theme to a whole new
level. This is exciting stuff!
If I get enough interest (we need 10-15 people to start), we
can form an online study group. See description below.
Happy Geeks are students interested in promoting their careers
in technology. Looking for a job in technology is like riding an emotional
roller coaster, it's full of ups and downs. One day you feel hopeful and the
next day you receive a rejection letter and you hopes are dashed to the ground.
We want to learn and practice positive psychology tools and techniques to live a
happy and meaningful life. We meet virtually every Thursday evening at 8pm
central time. Anyone with an interest in technology careers is welcome to join.
a personal goal to get at least one African American hired this year. Are you
interested? Check out the website. If you see a job that’s a good fit for you let me
know and we can discuss next steps.
