Palm Beach IT Users Group 25 Sep 13 Southeastern College

Echoing PBIT Group Leader, John Vighetto's comments on this meeting:

Hello everyone,

Last night’s meeting was not our usual meeting format, but nonetheless, it was very interesting & informative. Robert Oliva (and his staff) explained what his facility is currently providing its students, as well as how they perceive what the communities needs might be for future IT graduates. Our group was shown what certifications were currently available, and not only just in Information Technology. After dinner, we were also given a tour of the facilities by Robert.

The members of our group who attended yesterday’s presentation were also handed a certificate of appreciation for accepting the position as a member for Southeastern College’s advisory board. After the presentation, several of the current students stayed and expressed their concerns of what their chances of being placed in a good job were. Our members explained to them that they not only need this school’s foundation for their training, but to also go out and see what user groups are presenting on, as well as technologies that are emerging that the user groups are gearing up for.

On behalf of our user group, I extended an invitation to these students to attend one of our meetings so that they can see what the current topics of discussion are. Hopefully, we have a new wave of techs coming to our meetings, and thus providing us with new ideas and concepts to review.

I’d like to thank Robert for hosting our meeting last night, presenting, and also providing us with dinner!
