DESCRIPTION: Aaron and Brian continue the "Four for Four Hundred" shows, with a focus on community engagement. Then Brian talks with Amy Lewis (@commsninja, Director Influence Marketing @VMware) about the importance of finding a community for technical learning, career advice, mentorship, and helping you find the joy in your current or future jobs.




Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. What types of things are you working on these days, especially in the context of people getting support from communities?

Topic 2 - Tell us about the feedback you’re getting from community members about the importance of technical skills vs. industry-specific knowledge or skills.

Topic 3 - You often recommend “doing an interview” to gauge how well prepared someone is to find a new job, or understand new jobs. Can you elaborate on some examples of how to do this - the “frienderview”.

Topic 4 - Is it ever a good time to align your resume to the current buzzwords of the industry? How far away are your current skills from where you want to be?

Topic 5 - What are some tips for learning the domain-specific terminology as people move into new industries?

Topic 6 - How are you finding ways to Spark Joy in your communities?
