Given the ongoing spate of layoffs at Microsoft and elsewhere, I thought it might be worthwhile to promote this series of interviews I did a while back for our IT Job Universe career portal with Ron Vereggen, a consultant with Rapid Success Coaching and a former IT guy himself. We talked about how to get to the next step in your career, how to pick yourself up and dust yourself off after corporate downsizing and a lot more. You can also find these clips in our Canadian IT Industry Layoff Resource Centre. Most clips are less than five minutes.
