A lot of things have changed in Vermont — and the world — since our first Vermont 3.0: Creative Technology Career Jam last January. Despite the economy, we’re convinced now’s the perfect time for another “job expo on steroids.” Why? Because many innovative Vermont companies are still growing, and their biggest common challenge remains the same: finding qualified local employees.

Today’s job seekers should be asking themselves: Is my current career recession-proof? What additional skills would prepare me for a career that is both fulfilling and secure?

To that end, the 3.0 jam on October 25 at Champlain College has an intentional how-to focus. The aim is to help attendees understand what Vermont’s various tech jobs entail. How does a graphic designer transition to web development? Is “biotech” genetic engineering? What does a “Chief Technical Officer” do? Do you have to be a cop to bust pedophiles on the Internet? Is it really possible to build “socially responsible” video games?

The jam itself brings together dozens of Vermont companies that are ready for resumes and networking. Plus, during the course of the day, panel discussions will delve into 12 different tech careers, from robotics and digital forensics, to green energy, Internet marketing and online entertainment. Each panel will feature a business owner, worker and educator in the field.

Hopefully, at the end of the day, participants will have a better idea of where they want to be — and how to get there.
