Are Industry Conferences Useful for Job Seekers?

TheMarker's Com.vention 2007 will be taking place March 18th and 19th at Airport City outside Tel Aviv. The first day has an international theme concentrating a very full program of local and foreign Internet celebrities such as Yair Goldfinger and Loïc Le Meur. The planned speeches and talks will cover the latest Web trends and looks to be interesting, especially if you weren't fortunate enough to have been at an event like Loïc's LeWeb3 in December 2006. In parallel, there will be workshops by people like Orli Yakuel and Eyal Shahar talking about Web2.0. The second day focuses on major Israeli business leaders and how their industries have adapted to the Internet Age. It appears that this will be the 'enough talk, how will it help me?' day / the practical, applicable lessons day, as opposed to the food-for-thought discussions from the first day. If your company is not in hitech and you'd like to know which Internet technologies can help your operations, this second day is the day that you should put on your calendar. Day 2's workshops cover topics like SEO, blogging and creating Internet buzz cheaply.

However, to repair something, you need to know what's broken and that is one of the reasons why so many LeWeb3 attendees enjoyed Professor Hans Rosling's myth-busting presentation on the health of the world. I highly recommend that you watch it.
