Career Development

Keith Strong, President and Founder of vCOM Partners, leads the  Houston Career Development SIG.  This support group of peers, locally and nationally, maintains a singular focus - Helping to prepare today's IT Leadership for tomorrow. 

We offer educational programs, peer discussion groups, online resources, and more to help members develop the critical thinking skills, political savvy, and executive presence that today’s changing technology demands. Through the SIM Leadership Institute, we offer certification programs for every stage in your IT career, from first-time IT managers to director-level and senior executives.

In addition, we also share job leads and advice to help members develop strategies for advancing their careers or landing their next position.

Career Development meetings are held virtually on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 11:30 am through 1:00 pm CST.
