  • [geek:1] Monday, September 19, 2016
    Emily Kurze, Marketing Programs Manager, The Linux Foundation - "Get out of your own way: build the open source career you want!"
    Location: Davis Public Library, Blanchard Room

    According to Dice.com, 59% of hiring managers say their hiring of open source talent will increase over the next six months. As the pressure to fill these IT job roles increases to keep pace with demand, so too does the competition to land one of these lucrative opportunities. Having strong open source and career navigation skills has never been more important.

    But it can be overwhelming when you are trying to figure out how to get started. Come find out about open source career trends and how to leverage them, how to start getting involved in open source projects even if you aren't a coder, why networking isn't as scary as it seems and other tricks to help you achieve your career goals in open source.

    About the Speaker:
    Emily Kurze is currently the Marketing Programs Manager at The Linux Foundation. Prior to joining, she worked in the Linux certification, consumer electronics, educational robotics and SCADA software industries. Prior to her work in technology marketing, Emily was a wildlife biologist researching the effects of ultraviolet radiation. Since that time, she's also been a technical writer, software configuration trainer, and advanced technical support analyst, so she's learned a thing or two about reinventing one's career.
