Updates & 3 Free Webinars for Your Business!

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone was interested in seeing a regular post with webinars presented by local businesses. 

Not surprising, a lot of people said yes. 

The thing that did make me scratch my head was that every person who responded was looking for a webinar. 

You read that right. I did not hear from one business owner.

Since this is a resource people are looking for I'm going to leave it on the table.  Now that the NH Business Directory is expanding services I don't have the time to chase down leads, but if I come across a webinar or if someone wants to send me information about a webinar they are hosting I will gladly share it.

I just found 2 creative events for storytellers on Saturday, April 7th

Please forgive the late notice, I just found out about these events this morning.

The Derry Public Library is presenting Derry Author Fest 2018 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM Saturday, April 7th at the Derry Public Library, 64 E. Broadway, Derry, NH.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for writers and anyone interested in becoming a published writer to network, and get tips and advice from local authors about dealing with critics and rejection, getting published, and marketing your book.

They've put together an amazing lineup and it should be a very useful and informative event. 

Did I mention that it's free?  

For more information, please visit the Derry Author Fest website. (Be sure to click the video, they did a really nice job with it.)

Heads Up - Oracle Dyn in Manchester is HIRING!

Oracle Dyn will be hosting a recruiting and networking event on Thursday, March 22nd from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM at their Manchester office, 150 Dow Street. 

This is a big deal. This time last year there were a lot of concerned whispers about whether Dyn would remain a driving force in the local tech economy after their acquisition by Oracle and it's nice to see that not only are they staying, they're hiring. And it's not just techs.

A quick look at the current openings for the Manchester office shows 28 job postings for software engineers, hr people, sales, and support. (Yes, it does look like they added a couple jobs since Monday's "5 Opportunities to Find Your Perfect Job Now!" post)

The Eventbrite listing suggests that you take a look at their current openings and if you see a position you're interested in, go ahead and apply online then bring a copy of your resume to the event.

Don't forget, this is also a fabulous industry networking opportunity. 

Whether you are a tech person or someone looking to bring non-tech skills to a tech company, this is a great opportunity to get a lead on a new job and meet some industry people.

Snow, snow, and more snow... We may be approaching the middle of March, but Mother Nature is still wreaking havoc on the calendar...

Thanks to the latest storm, a lot of this week's events were canceled or rescheduled and since it was still snowing while I was writing this week's posts there's a good chance that some event organizers will be doing more changes.  As always, please be sure to follow links and double check the event information with organizer.  

I know I've mentioned this several times in recent months, but if you're planning on going to an event that requests an RSVP, please do so.  Most organizers will send an email to let people know if they decide to cancel or reschedule an event.  If you didn't RSVP or did not get a notice from an event organizer, check their website, Facebook or meetup.com page before heading out.
