Looking at the job search process, hiring managers and human resource officials determine evaluate you quickly and based on few inputs. The good news is you have the opportunity to stand out.

Delivering your brand clearly and consistently is just as important, but first you need to understand what a brand is and isn’t. Alex explores “branding” and the art of creating a distinct brand for yourself. He will share which variables are most often used by Human Resources determining whether to call you in for an interview or not.

So whether you want to learn how create your own brand, become known in a new career field, or attract interviews, it may boil down to the quality of your brand.

During this event, you will:

  • Look at the concept of brand is (and isn’t)
  • Explore what it takes to build your awesome brand
  • Learn what it takes to be the candidate
  • Be taught how to position yourself to hear “Yes. It’s you we want.”

October 2018 Section Meeting: Quality Aspects as Artificial Intelligence Progresses

Beginning with a thought exercise on robots, we will consider aspects of intelligence we have come to expect from automation. Given two clear technology trajectories and certain potential technical disruptors, we’ll consider the time-distance to a horizon beyond which we cannot see clearly. Next is the hard part: what defines the intelligence quality? Assuming artificial intelligence (AI) is a bundled set of responses to stimuli and query, a personality will emerge. What kinds of personalities are we going to specify in upcoming technology? Who will corporations entrust to set the tolerances for mission assurance parameters and establish risk registers? This talk will make the case that because of AI’s shortening of the time-horizon in technology, leadership positions will transition from engineers to liberal arts majors.

Section Meeting: Workforce Issues for NJ Manufacturers – The Need for Skilled Workers

Join us for the June 2018 section meeting where Ray Vaccari will share with us the state of NJ’s manufacturing industry, focusing on its workforce issues. NJ has 11,000 manufacturing companies, 90% of which have 50 or less employees. Most of these companies do not have HR departments to help find and develop the skilled workers they need to continue operations and grow in the future. This talk will focus on the issues manufacturers have due to the shortage of skilled workers. Ray will discuss programs the NJ Dept. of Labor has implemented to help train incumbent and new workers. He will also present what educators are doing, particularly in the Career Technical Education (CTE) schools (aka votechs), private schools, community colleges and four year universities. One solution that NJIT has developed is the MechaFORCE Registered Internship Manufacturing Program, M-RIM, in which NJIT acts as a sponsor for apprenticeships, or registered internships, for NJ manufacturers.

DATE, TIME & PLACE: Tuesday, June 12, 2018 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Location: Spanish Tavern, 103 McWhorter Street – Newark, NJ 07105 (MapIt)
