February Day Meetup #2: State of Austin's Job Situation

UPDATE: Due to an external schedule conflict, I've had to change the date for this meetup from Wednesday the 20th to Thursday the 21st. We'll still do it at 1:00pm.

 

Join us for our second day-side meetup in February at Genuine Joe Coffeehouse. This meeting will also be of special interest to job-seekers and anyone looking for work, as we'll be taking stock of the employment situation in Austin regarding designers and artists.

 

There are many reasons to be encouraged as Texas (and Austin in particular) is still making slight progress (as compared to the rest of the country) in getting people back to work, but on the other hand, the traditional jobs that designers and artists filled before are still declining. However, emerging technologies mean all kinds of new opportunities for people who are able to adapt or repurpose their previous experience.

 

If you're currently are working and/or have a job, and therefore don't feel this would be of benefit to you, I would still appreciate your participation if you're available. Having people from companies that are employing designers and artists would be very helpful in getting more perspectives on what's going on out there.

 

See you all in a few days!

    Great! This was my first meetup. I wasn't sure what to expect, but coming out of it I feel already miles ahead from where I was before the meeting. Lots of resources!

    I'm new. When I enter the coffee house will it be obvious who the group is? Will there be a sign?
