ITEE MEETING: November 12, 2010

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Next ITEE Meeting will discuss the topic:

Assimilating Mobile and Consumer Devices into the IT Infrastructure

With Androids and iPhones, Blackberries, iPads, and the next wave of tablet computers lurking in the shadows, IT departments are racing to accommodate the demands of executives down the line to plug these devices into the corporate infrastructure. While presenting security and other challenges, they also represent an opportunity for “mobilizing” enterprise applications. This ITEE session will be devoted to discussing the implications of the new wave of mobile and consumer devices. Share your experiences and learn from the experiences of your peers in this discussion led by George Mehok, CIO at Revol Wireless.  Please visit the IT Executive Exchange page for details.

Orysia D’Aurelio Provides Resume’ and Interview Tips to SITE

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

The Society for Information Technology and eBusiness (SITE) was proud to host Orysia D’Aurelio, managing director of COMSYS and CITe advisory board member, as the first guest speaker of the semester. D’Aurelio talked to the group about what employers want to see on your resume and how they want you to act in an interview. The group was provided with a crash course to resume building, looking at some previous examples and discussing how to effectively sell yourself.

Some of the tips involved positive self-marketing — think of yourself as an emerging IT professional instead of just a recent graduate. Furthermore, job seekers should identify their strengths and weaknesses so they are prepared to answer these questions in an interview. D’Aurelio also stated that joining and participating in student organizations was a desirable asset for your resume.

After the session a small group stayed behind and talked about becoming a business analyst. D’Aurelio provided information about a group called IIB (International Institute of Business Analysis) that meets monthly in Cleveland. SITE is exploring the possibility of attending one of the IIB meetings to network and learn more about opportunities in the field.
