Thanks and Announcements

As is common during this time, I would like to thank those who have helped make this site what it is and also thank everyone who uses the site for your support. I apologize for the lack of activity due to IAAPA and the holiday and the fact that we are going through some changes internally. Keep your eyes out for some awesome changes over the next few days as we launch some new features that hopefully will make the site even better moving forward!

New Sponsor!

Hello everyone. I have a very exciting announcement! Our website has its first sponsor!

Software Engineering Services for Themed Entertainment

Effortless Presence enables your organization to rapidly deploy and scale engineering resources for your software projects without the hassle of hiring. Effortless Presence is a 100% US based cohort of skilled software engineers and software project management professionals. From concept to production, Effortless Presence stacks the deck in your favor.

We are just waiting for the legal infrastructure to finalize and we will be opening the site for donations and sponsorships in general!

The goal of this website is and will forever be to help people find their way in themed entertainment and build our industry by bringing in talented, diverse, and amazing people. However, as the site and my ambition for it grows, Dave’s bank account can no longer support the full weight of the site and we have opened the site to allow for some community aide in the form of donations and sponsorships. We are grateful for all of those who have chosen to support the site and look forward to growing the community and the industry together.

Happy IAAPA Everyone!

We recognize IAAPA as the amazing opportunity for job seekers that it is! I know a lot of people are coming to Orlando for the trade show for the first time! Please check out this handy guide we made for the trade show with some great tips assembled from the community! Let us know if you have any other tips for the community! Share with all your friends who are coming for the first time! Big thanks to all those who helped and contributed!

But, before we get the whole article, in order to plan ahead, let’s talk about sessions! There are many panels and speakers and events to look out for that are on and off the show floor! Check out a full list from IAAPA and the spotlights we think would serve our community the best here!
