Could you answer this question from a CTO/CEO? #cloud ?! please RT

‘We had your main competitor in the cloud services in front of us last week – why should we use your services instead of them?’

If you can answer that then I’d like to hear from you.

..got some very interesting Presales/Sales Engineer/evangelist roles to run past you.

#LinkedIn lowers age of consent to 13 • The Register – the beginning of the end for LinkedIn?

LinkedIn lowers age of consent to 13 • The Register.

Cut through the waffle and this is a gather numbers game pure and simple.

LinkedIn is a professional contact site not another Facebook.

IMHO, bad strategy.

Stop ‘bedding down’ in your IT career! #timetokickon #itjobs please retweet

I can’t tell you the number of times over the last few years that I’ve heard the following:

‘Neil, I know my job’s !@#+@@!, I know I could move and get new IT skills / new IT accreditations / more money but in this current economic climate its just too risky. I’ve been in my current job a long time and I’m a known face, …etc etc etc.’

Yeah very sensible outlook you would think – bottom line is people have mortgages & modern lives to finance!

…but things are definitely 100% improving!

New IT skills can be gained, new IT accreditations are being offered, ‘good candidates’ are getting higher salaries, e.g. this has happened this week:

‘…that candidate we interviewed was perfect. Lets not mess about – offer him wants he wants & lets get it done’

‘…thanks for calling. Glad you have. I was going to call you today – I’ve got 4 x jobs that I need you to focus on’

‘…consider us all stations go on recruitment. Get CV’s in!’

‘…our Senior Engineer has nudged me to kick you up the backside & get more CV’s in…’

This is live, on the ground, current UK IT market sentiment!

Maybe its time for you to stick your head over the parapet, take off the risk averse glasses and see what you could achieve?
