2019-01-28: INCOSE CC and Local Job Fairs
INCOSE Chesapeake Chapter attended the recent reStart job fair held at the BWI Hilton in Linthicum Heights. MD on January 28, 2019. Many of the participants also participated in the panel discussion that included tips as well as current methods that employers look for in their hiring process.
We tell all those we meet to “Amp-up their career with INCOSE” – membership along with the pursuit of a SEP (Systems Engineering Professional) certification helps to distinguish them in their job search.
Also included in the job fair package is a booth that has a quick review of your resume with tips and guidance on what works in today’s market. In a booklet provided at the fair that lists the participants, we counted 13 ads with the term “Systems Engineer” out of the 20 pages in the booklet – 2/3rds – this means that we are in demand.
We encourage any job seeker to attend in person since there is much to gain. Personal presence is much more robust than just sending in a resume to a company web site. Many companies had hiring managers at the event.
The next reStart job fair event in the Maryland area will be on March 25th at the same location. We’ll keep our members in mind as the event gets closer.
