10/14/2018: "Knowledge Workers Invited To “Meetup”"
The EDC is working to create a knowledge worker network for islanders who work with code, data, graphics or words, and they invite knowledge workers and those who work with them to attend an informal meetup on October 24th from 5:30 until 7:00 p.m. at the San Juan Island Library. Refreshments will be served.
Knowledge worker jobs are skilled jobs that are often done remotely or online, by individual freelancers or consultants. These jobs include computer programming, editing, web development, engineering/scientific consulting, and others. Projects often involve combinations of these types of jobs (e.g., coding and design, or data analysis and writing).
The EDC wants to learn how to help San Juan County knowledge workers succeed, and to help local freelancers and consultants team up to find partners and clients and share business ideas. A knowledge worker network could promote economic development by helping locals to find off-island clients, bringing more revenue and higher incomes to the islands. In addition, it would help local businesses find local talent more easily.
Join the EDC and share ideas about what actions and strategies would benefit local knowledge workers and how to implement them. The meetup will be on Oct. 24th, 2018, from 5:30 until 7:00 p.m. at the San Juan Island Library meeting room and refreshments will be served. More information is available on the EDC website at www.sanjuansedc.org/kwn, or email email@example.com.
