Six actually attended including the Section Chair, Frank Freyne, co-chairs of the Employment Network Committee and the Pace Committee Bill Grist and Raymond Roberts, respectively; Joe Pasek who was unemployed with an interview scheduled for the next day; and Raj Singh who is self employed but under-employed. We spent the time discussing our various careers so that those attending could have an understanding of each others individual capabilities. Joe’s background is in digital signal processing; Raj’s background and his business focus on printed circuit boards using lithography; Raymond specializes in patent law; Bill’s area is associated with computer systems and applications; Frank specializes in aerospace and radar systems; and Cash works within the power systems area.
We discussed potential interview questions and tips for those with upcoming interviews; as well as tools for finding jobs online (ie. INDEED.com and others).
