Hi everyone. My name is Conner and I started this group. I love all things web design. Looking forward to setting up a meetup very soon so we can all meet and talk about where our interests lie. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
I think most of us realize the importance of networking both professionally and personally. People continue to be let go from companies they've put in decades with. Knowing people in our line of work is crucial to quickly finding a new position. Here's an example. A member of the Nashville Web 2.0 group sent out an email about how CMT (country music television) was desperate for someone to do some freelance Web design for them. I applied. Got a call a week or so later but was too busy to do it. I told her I would pass it on the my group members at our next meeting. So if anyone is interested in doing quite a bit of freelance work from CMT send me an email and I'll pass on the information about who to get in touch with.
