CD01 CAREER DEVELOPMENT: Next Roles, Next Skills and Staying Relevant in an Evolving IT World

Wednesday 29 October, 12:00 – 13:15

You'd be forgiven for thinking that wider adoption of cloud services will mean that Infrastructure specialists will no longer be needed in IT. While it is true that some traditional IT functions are in decline, there are also new roles emerging and so the challenge we face is how to develop our careers and stay relevant in the IT job market.

That's the question we're trying to answer in this session, and we plan to break the problem down into three parts—what are those Next roles; what are the Next Skills we need; and what you need to do Next to stay current as the IT job market evolves. We do this by working with some of the pioneers in these new areas, specifically some of the Microsoft Valued Professionals who are already here at TechEd, as they have already started on this journey. Please join us for this interactive discussion which we hope will help you to be part of what's next.

WIT01 WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY: Your Career as a Journey – Navigating for Success

Thursday 30 October, 12:00 – 13:15

There are many stages of our career journey—from the go-go early years of exploration, to later shifts into leadership roles. In each phase, it's critical to identify your priorities and make intentional choices about where you place your energy. Join Microsoft IT Vice President Jacky Wright as she reveals her learnings through her own career journey, and engage in a lively discussion about how each of us can identify and achieve our goals at every stage.
