By ESTHER SURDEN
The recent upSKILL Jobs 2.0 conference – an event focused on experienced IT workers who have lost their jobs and are trying to find new ones – provided information that job seekers can use as they endeavor to make the transition from one skill set to another.
The meeting took place at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) Newark, Oct. 21, 2013.
Jobs 2.0 was organized by upSKILL, an NJIT-led, federally funded grant for training unemployed IT and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professionals in areas in which northern New Jersey companies need workers.
