Changes to Employment Booth at the Conference

The Employment booth will be very different this year. First of all, the resumes will be online and not in binders. We will be using the STC Career Center where you can post your resume free. That way your resume will be available for more than just the conference days and be seen worldwide.

If you want to post your resume, please bring it to Atlanta on a thumb drive….don’t forget your STC login and password.

Further, STC has informed all exhibitors that STC will waive the job posting fee for any positions they might have. If any attendee’s company has an open job position to post, we will do the same. If you have a job opening to post, please contact Stacey O’Donnell at email hidden; JavaScript is required

And some of the hot spots will grow hotter, local hiring experts say. Stimulus spending will pump billions of dollars through government agencies and contractors in the area…

‘We’re one of the lucky ones to be in this area right now,’ said Fred DiSalvo, director of staffing and recruitment at Northrop Grumman’s Reston-based Information Systems division. The company plans to hire about 4,000 employees in the Washington region this year, largely in software development and network security. ‘A lot of the new spending is going to be in real sweet spots for us, cyber security, health-information systems.’

How to Verify a Work-at-Home Jobs Web site is Valid

I discovered the Rat Race Rebellion site at https://ratracerebellion.com/ today following a link on the Social Security Administration’s job information page. This video is a valuable lesson for telecommuters looking for work and surprisingly, the website they use as their case study is still live!

The video shows the Opera.com executives page at and compares it with the executives page of a different company at webstar-inc, who have used the photos of the Opera executives for their fake executives.
