Interesting to see the large turn-out at the Geo job fair taking place in Loveland, Colorado today at the GIS in the rockies event. During the morning break I took some time to walk around to see what kind of turn-out was there. Great to see a number of companies with representatives going through short, on-site interviews with job seekers. Some of the companies present and hiring include: ESRI, Telvent (Miner & Miner) idea integration, Dcci, Jeppesen, XeDar, Sanborn and a few others. Interesting, when I spoke to one HR exec i asked her if she was interested in online job posting via our GISuser Career board (and offered some free posting)… seemed she had a hard time not laughing (which struck me as odd) and she proceeded to tell me that when she posts jobs online inevitable she gets inundated with applications from people not qualified or suitable – wow!
