I have been working with some pretty cool people as of late.  Though I have still not landed the elusive “BIG GIRL” career.  I have a feeling something good will happen soon.  I mean the karma has to be going into my favor eventually, right?

Charles Pugh Guest speaker Third Thursday Roundtable

Charles Pugh Guest speaker Third Thursday Roundtable

Third Thursday Roundtable (Sept 17) is a networking lunch which is going to feature Charles Pugh.  This should be exciting and you can learn about the change he is going to bring if elected to City Counsel in Detroit.  Will a fresh face help bring Detroit to light?  Let’s hope so.  So be ready for networking from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at  Club Venetian Banquet & Conference Center 29310 John R  Madison Heights, 48071.  Cost is 25.00 includes lunch and networking.

Sept 17 is a pretty busy day.  If you are like me and still trying to find the elusive FULL TIME career.  Here is your chance to learn Guerrilla Job techniques from Detroit’s own MSU grad Kevin Donlin and his partner David Perry.  He will be hosting a seminar at the MSU management center in Troy  and through this blog you can receive $10.00 of the cost of the seminar.  Just by typing JFB.

I have used some of the techniques successfully.  I have used them for acquiring my internships with FWIX and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Here is a presentation I used when I gave a speech to 150 people at St Anastasia in Troy, MI.

I am a huge supporter and I think it is really worth the time to go and be a part of this seminar. I am using directed networking as I would call it. Kevin comes up with a lot of great ideas. Well worth the time and money.

If this isn’t enough… October has a cool event as well.  Brand Camp 09 will be on October 10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI. Brand Camp University’s goal as an interactive conference that brings together the best and brightest minds in communications, marketing, brand development and business management to explore how social media has revolutionized the way individuals and companies position themselves personally and professionally.

So do you want to do something which puts Detroit back on the map? You can learn about the future of Detroit with Charles Pugh, get back to work with Kevin Donlin and David Perry, or get your brand on track by attending Brand Camp.

Let’s see you there…

On Saturday I presented this to about 150 people at St. Anastasia in Troy for a Re – Employment seminar put on by Matthew Karrandja.  His goal was to give financial planning,  social media training, and some resume advice to the community.  He is planning on having a faith based network.

He also has a website which he is hoping to promote.  I am going to be a part of his content team.  We are looking to keep the good talent in MI and not move.   Everyone has heard of the brain drain and a lot of professionals are moving out of MI.

We need good news and this is going to be a platform to help people in transition.  I met Matt through a Linked In connection, then we went to lunch for a meeting and I thought I couldn’t help him since Trialon is automotive employment and here I am a social networking person.  Turns out this was actually a great fit! He has been a great asset and full of great advice.

I am a student of Kevin Donlin and I met David Perry his partner through Linked In.  This is where I have practiced the lessons in which I am sharing and if you need ideas I suggest you follow them on Twitter, add them on Facebook and Linked IN.  They are really smart people.  What is on this presentation is only a touch of what they teach.  I combine it with the power of  your online presence.

Let’s get everyone working together and make a difference in MI!
