NYC2600, get to work!

Does the local job market grab your interest? How about preparing yourself to dive into it, or just helping out those of us who are? Check this action out.

Stemming from discussions at last week’s meeting, we’re trying out something new to address a longstanding demand.

So many among the NYC2600 community find themselves in need of new work opportunities. The process of connecting qualified jobseekers with available positions in the local tech world has long been a convoluted mess. We think it’s time for something better.

We propose a dedicated hangout between NYC2600 meetings, in our normal space at the Atrium and at our normal time, during which we’ll huddle and swap information specifically related to finding work. Feel free to bring your resume, as anonymized as you wish, if you’d like to show it off and/or seek advice on tightening it up. Feel free to ask your fellow NYC2600ers about their past and present gigs, and to share as much info about your own professional path as you’re willing to. If you know of any gigs out there looking for qualified candidates, bring that info as well. If you’re not actively seeking a gig, you’d still be welcome to come share your own job-seeking expertise and experience with the rest of us.

We hope to make this the first of a recurring series serving a specific need of our community. Come to the Atrium on Friday, March 24 around 6 PM, and let’s get NYC2600 to work!

NYC2600’s new home – the Atrium at 875

Posted at 3:51 PM on 1-11-17 by Rob T Firefly

We’re excited to announce the meeting place for next month!

The Atrium at 875 Third Avenue is on the corner of 53rd Street and 3rd Ave, right across from our former home at Citigroup. There is a nice atrium with connections to lots of amenities, including the Lexington Avenue subway station.

Many of us have been suggesting and checking out possible places for our meetings to convene post-Citigroup, and the Atrium at 875 was at the top of the lists. A bunch of us took a walk over during and after the January 2017 meeting to check the place out, and it looks as though it’ll suit our purposes nicely.

On the lower level, at the foot of some glowing glass-sided escalators, stand a nice food-court’s-worth of tables and chairs which should prove a neat place to assemble beginning next month.

Even if, by some stretch, Citigroup has not closed after all by next meeting, we shall still consider this the official home of NYC2600 and encourage all to meet up here from now on.

The lower food court area seems to close up a little earlier than Citigroup, but not before we’ve usually moved on to dinner anyway. Should we ever need them, it seems facilities on upper floors of the atrium remain open until 11PM.

See you here next meeting!
