Innovation Calling – Ageism, Reinvention, and Standing Out in the IT Application Abyss

One of the driving factors behind our podcast was to highlight great companies so those helping to create innovation could find new opportunities.

 

However, even in a great hiring economy, it can still feel hard to stand out from the crowd to land those dream jobs. And employers still have an issue on retaining the right talent, helping their talented workforce to reinvent themselves as automation creeps into business models, and finding the talent for new technologies.

 

In this episode, we talked to Julian Placino about common misconceptions of Corporate America, and how you can stand out when applying for so many of these emerging technology jobs even if you started out as a COBOL developer. (Yes, we went there)

 

Here is the official episode breakdown:

The Human Condition – Episode 7 – PTSD – The Silent Killer

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)is a mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats on a person’s life. Symptoms may include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events, mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, attempts to avoid trauma-related cues, alterations in how a person thinks and feels, and an increase in the fight-or-flight response. These symptoms last for more than a month after the event. Young children are less likely to show distress, but instead may express their memories through play. A person with PTSD is at a higher risk for suicide and intentional self-harm. (Source Wikipedia)

Join us Wednesday as we discuss our very personal battles with this, very often misunderstood mental condition, and the tools that have helped us achieve some success in this lifelong battle with this invisible killer…
