NEW IT Alliance-January Tech Upload
New IT News
This time of year tends to be quiet in the NEW IT Alliance, giving us time to reflect, recharge, and catch our breath. We hope you were also able to take some time over the Holidays to enjoy yourself.
We recently launched the Explore Digital Careers video series. These videos feature local IT professionals from throughout Northeast Wisconsin representing a large number of our member companies. These brave souls stepped outside of their normal roles to volunteer as actors for the day to talk about their work in IT – and what they love working and living in Northeast Wisconsin. We expect these videos will help us attract more people to discover Northeast Wisconsin as well as help students discover IT as a great career path.
Two of the videos are general, showcasing what people in IT do, and how IT is a creative field impacting everything from healthcare to manufacturing.
The third video is the first of a series featuring an individual. In this one, Jes Borland from Microsoft shares her story about how she went from wanting to be a teacher to becoming a Microsoft Field Engineer.
It took a whole crew to create the videos. A huge thanks to all the volunteers who participated in front of the camera. You make IT in Northeast Wisconsin shine!
Also special thanks to Stellar Blue for the videography, Kathi Seifert for the idea, and for directing, as well as Jack Ekins for being our talent coach and pumping up the energy level of all the participants.
