I am an IEEE member and got the same mail from Pradeep. My experience with
Open Source is not nil but not advanced either. I'm volunteering to staff
the booth; I think it would be fun. I am not looking for a job.

Since all of you are employed and all, I figured nobody here would
be interested. :-)   

We might consider setting up an Open Source booth at this event.  
The idea is, if you don't have a job, you can still get some 
experience and some bullet points on your resume by working on an open
source project.  I would have to get back to Ed Perkins pretty quickly on
this.  Is there any interest in staffing a booth?

IEEE Oregon Section has partnered with the Professional Resource Consortium 
NW group and OGI to organize a Career Fair on Tuesday, Sept. 28 from 3-7 PM 
for our unemployed and underemployed members and other high tech 
professionals in the Portland area.

PortlandTech Career Fair

Professional Resource Consortium NW (PRCNW) will be jointly sponsoring a 
high tech professional career fair that will be held at the Wilson Clark

seek to benefit from the job opportunities presented by employers.

Facility. You are encouraged to sign up early and be prepared to answer a 
few short skill set questions in the process. Check-in at the registration 
desk to pick up your nametag. Please be on time. "Drop-ins" will be 
discouraged due to limited time and space available.

Up to 20 companies and recruiters will have booths at the Career Fair. A 
sample of the attending companies includes: AZAD, Daverci, EdgeLink, 
Kforce, Tech Link NW (Salem), and Tektronix. There is still space available 
for additional companies and interested recruiters should refer to the
