MJFChat: Career tips and tricks for IT pros

You can find the chat transcript, here.

We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our community of readers.

Maximize Value from Microsoft Defender

In this ebook, you’ll learn why Red Canary’s platform and expertise bring you the highest possible value from your Microsoft Defender for Endpoint investment, deployment, or migration.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, July 22, is between me and Rick Claus, Cloud Advocate Team Lead at Microsoft. The general topic of our chat is career tips and tricks for IT pros. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

Claus has held a variety of jobs at Microsoft over the past 15 years, so he has some career advice based on his own experiences. But he also has a ringside seat in his Cloud Advocate role to a number of the hottest new technologies in the Microsoft ecosystem. If you’re an IT pro looking to try to move to the next level and/or simply trying to stay relevant as more and more workloads move to the cloud, Claus has some thoughts to share on tactics and resources. (There are unconfirmed reports that Rick’s Tilley Hat might also be on hand to help with the tougher questions.)

If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
