I gave a presentation on Cloud-based Project Management and Team Collaboration Tools a couple weeks ago. Actually, I've been speaking on this topic a lot over the last year. As part of my presentations, I often include music. At the end of my presentation for the Camarillo Public Library's Russel Fischer Business Collection, we got to talking about creativity and songwriting. I told the story of this song, The IT Job Seeker's Song - that I wrote for a keynote I gave to McDonald's IT group a few years ago. Here is me telling a bit of the story and performing the song. As an IT professional, I hope you enjoy the sentiment. The lyrics can be found below. The IT Job Seeker's Song - video: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl9CjvIYSa0] (more…)
