Hup Holland Series!



I will be writing this "Hup Holland" series for a variety of reasons.
  • I live here some 7 (seven) odd years and I feel for my country (despite the fact that I am of Indian descent)
  • I have totally adopted the culture and am the culture has adopted me.
  • I have been past the dejection and disillusionment TO "hup holland mode"
  • I have been through all the hurdles to realize and respect of what I have and how I live
  • I want to contribute to help make my country to become a nation of excellence and not just some vacation spot for some asians (pun intended! ;-))
  • If I ever leave (I mean go to some other place , get a new job, move to afganistan because I wanna teach the kids out there or help street kids in argentina get computer savvy), I leave with pain (of parting) and not in disgust.
  • And last but not the least, I want to motivate you too! :-)
Listen to what I say about this...

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!
