For the months of October and November, the regular meetings at Recycled Reads and Howson Library will be on hiatus. As a replacement and to help those looking for work, we're adding to our calendar the weekly meetings that will be taking place as part of the Launchpad Job Club on Tuesday afternoons, called the Creative Media Job Clublet.
These meetings will combine the artists, designers, and other people from our group with writers, editors, and such from a group called The Write Job. In addition the meetings will be joined by people who are interested in learning about online media topics like Wordpress, social networking, LinkedIn, and multimedia.
The meetings are being held in the Food Court at Highland Mall. This will come as a surprise to many of you, as lots of people believe that Highland Mall is now closed. It is in fact still open, and the Food Court has a number of good restaurants still serving. It's true that there are very few stores left, and even fewer people shopping, but that actually makes the Food Court quiet enough to have decent meetings there. They've already had a couple there and they worked pretty well.
If you're looking for a job or other work, or want to network with other folks whose fields overlap and intersect with yours, these would be good meetings to attend.
