This month, Thursday, June 27, 2013, the NYC SQL User Group be doing something a little different. Instead of a technical presentation, we’ll be learning about some very important non-technical skills needed for database professionals to advance their careers. We’ll be meeting on Thursday June 27th at 6:00 PM at our usual location at the Microsoft Offices at 1290 6th Avenue. The presenters will also be providing refreshments and giveaways.

Building a Personal Brand
There’s no doubt that your baseline credibility as an IT professional is tied to your technical skills. However, while not universally the case, technical skills alone may not be enough to propel your career to an ideal destination.
With that in mind, the goal of this presentation will be to help attendees understand how to combine their technical proficiencies with simple, powerful soft skills that yield arguably the most important component to career longevity: a respected personal brand.
Providing lessons from more than a decade placing and interacting with ambitious and successful members of the Microsoft technical community, the content of this presentation will emphasize:
• ?Building an audience hungry to consume your expertise
• ?How to create mutually beneficial relationships with your peers and colleagues rather than the elusive concept of “networking”
• ?The value of understanding your business
There will be many other morsels of information and case studies provided along the way and whether you’re seeking a career change or looking to enhance your positioning where you’re currently employed, it would be a pleasure to have you join us.
