Earning the Certs the Market Demands” for the September issue. I will be interviewing Lisa Spieth, president of LSRCS, on the certifications that are most valuable in the market today.
Shinbokucon will be held on April 29. I will be presenting on “The Culture and Impact of Groups in Japanese Society”. The discussion will center around how groups are such an essential and often misinterpreted part of Japanese culture. I will also talk about how groups have shaped the culture I see today and give some insight on
how to understand the Japanese group perspective.
I appreciate any feedback you may have on my articles once they are published. Also, if you are able to make it to Shinbokucon, please look up my presentation. I am available to chat in person afterwards and the event should be fun.
Today is my last day teaching at Remington College. I was asked not to tell the students until today. It is sad leaving because I really enjoy what I do but I need to work in a place where I can grow more. Starting Monday, I will be working for Jurinnov to manage information technology, software development, and information security. This job involves more responsibility and I perceive it to be quite a challenge. Jurinnov does computer forensics and data discovery for litigation. I am quite excited about the opportunity. I am also excited about the possibility to travel since the company is global. I will also be working downtown. I have never worked in the city before. All my previous jobs have been in the burbs or in small towns like Kent. This will be another new experience for me. I have to admit that I am a little nervous as well.I will not be leaving teaching completely. I am an Adjunct Professor at LCCC (Lorain County Community College). I went to the orientation last night where I met a few of my new co-workers. I will be teaching a Saturday class this semester. My schedule will be a little busier but I believe it is worth it. With both jobs, I will be able to still teach but also grow as a technologist and leader.
Kent State University is hosting me today to talk about penetration testing and what it can do for your company security. The topic is titled “Penetration Testing: A proactive approach to secure computing” and the slides are provided below.
A new quarter is starting on Monday. I will be teaching Programming 1, Career Development and Packaged Applications. I was going to get some things from a coworker that have to deal with my Packaged Applications class but I have not went into work in the last few days. I guess I will have to structure my syllabus without looking at his information first. My plan is to give them a syllabus but to hand out the assignment list later so that I will have more time to prepare it.
