Preparing for Your Next Job
Most database professionals don’t look for a new job until they are either not happy with their current employment, or they have recently become unemployed. That, however, is the worst time to start getting your information in order. During this session we will discuss what you should be doing on a regular basis, rather than waiting for a job changing event to dust off your resume. Understanding that the competition is growing for each database role out is the first step in ensuring that you remain marketable.
