Hi All - Excited to announce our first event of 2015. Our sponsor and host is New Relic. See you on the 29th floor of the "big pink"!

Topic is: "Recruiting Challenges in Todays World for Startup Founders", with the awesome Susan Robinson. Can't wait to see you all!

The Speaker: When Susan was working on her Bachelor of Engineering and MBA, she had no idea she would one day run her own company. She started her career as a Software Developer for a local software development company, before moving up to a Project Manager which was her first experience in hiring talent. She left the corporate world to become a consultant for a Professional Services organization for several years where she implemented ERP systems. Prior to Y2K when there was a shortage of local talent to provide software remediation, she moved into technology staffing. In those 15 years sha has experienced the highs and lows in hiring technology talent from Y2K, .com bubble and burst, the Great Recession and everything in between. because she loves what she does, in November of 2013 sha started Tech Talent Link where she focuses on assisting companies find technology talent either on direct hire or temporary basis.
