Hi Ben,

I'll just stick my 2¢ in here and mention the value that membership and
_attendance_ at professional society meetings can have to a job seeker.

While I suppose that technology or IT groups might be worthwhile - here I'm
talking more of an 'industry' level or 'functional' level approach.  If you
want to work in health care, there are quite a few health care groups you
could investigate joining. If you want to work in supply chain, you could
make good contacts at an APICS meeting.

That kind of thing.

Hey. Impressing a purchasing manager with what you could do for him <sigh />
if only his company's IT folks would hire you ... gives you a 'champion' on
the inside - and you can't beat that with a stick!
