This will be more focused for interactive designers rather than photographers, but you are welcome to come if you are interested.

We are going to do something a bit different this user group, I have invited John Poore, who has helped sponsor our group several times through Aquent, a chance to provide a very insightful look on the other side of the Recruiter equation.

The jobs that John has been filling over the past few years have been for User Interaction Designers, User experience designers, Information Architects, Web Designers, Flex Developers and other front end designer/developer roles. Fireworks, Flash Catalyst, Dreamweaver and Photoshop are some of the top hard skills that his clients are looking for, this talk will also focus on how to present your skills to help you land that dream job or freelance project you have always wanted.

The economy is starting to pick up and school for many has just ended, its time to polish up the resume and see what is out there. John has been putting people to work for over 16 years, including several members of our group. This is a chance for you to ask questions about how creative recruiting works and how you can present your best foot forward to find the right job for you. If you have ever had a question for a recruiter that you wanted answered honestly, with no filter, John will answer them all directly.

Join us for a great discussion on how working as a creative person fits into today's world.
