2011 4G World Conference Notes by Carl Schumacher

Recently I attended the 4G World 2011 Conference in Chicago, Il.
Notable keynote speakers at the Conference included Bob Azzi Senior Vice President, Network, Sprint, Osama Bedier, VP, Payments, Google Tom Jasny Vice President, Wireless & Broadband Network Systems, Samsung Telecommunications as well as several other executives from the top players in the 4G market place.
In all close to 250 different companies were represented at the show with many other individual’s walking the show. This is my second time attending the show and there was a definite grown in attendance and excitement.
I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a job in wireless to attend this event and others like it. It is a great place to get a pulse on what jobs are currently available in Wireless and Telecommunications along with which roles will be available in the future. As an executive recruiter in wireless I have often found candidates at shows that I have later placed at jobs.
I attended the conference as a press representative for MobileWirelessJobs as the Editor-In-Chief and blogger. I had the opportunity to interview a couple of companies who had booths at the show. Please listen to the podcasts to hear about what they have to say about the 4G job market.
