Colorado Tech Weekly #152: Finding Opportunities in Colorado is Easy

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

Finding opportunities is easy. Taking advantage of opportunities? That’s the difficult part.

With achievement of my degree within sight and a few projects completed it is time for me to take job searching seriously. Last night I started trying to figure out how to get paid for doing something I love. I looked at a few online job postings but this does not seem like a good strategy considering the network of awesome people I’ve cultivated in the last 152 weeks. Then there’s the question of “What is a good strategy?” Should I put my head down and charge at a dream job or should I keep my eye out for other software developer jobs? My heart wants to go for the dream job but my heart also really wants to get out of this job so I can work as a developer full time as soon as possible!

If you have any job searching advice, I’d love to hear it. If you just have a job offer, I’d love to hear that even more!

Colorado Tech Weekly #109: From the Front Range to the Western Slope

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

I know that most of the biggest and loudest tech companies are in front range cities like Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs but I pride myself on truly making this newsletter about tech companies throughout the state. That’s why this week I’m excited about the Xconomy article about the Telluride Venture Accelerator‘s newest class of tech startups and to be able to promote CTA’s Tech Tour that starts a week from today. I would be all for driving around the state, visiting tech companies. I’m jealous.
