AIIM Expo: The Overview

Today, will be my second year attending the info360 AIIM Expo and ON DEMAND Expo here in Philadelphia.  This year I also hope to spend more time at the ON DEMAND Conference and Expo, which as the press release describes is “the largest digital printing and automated production event in North America.”

The two organizations and conferences focus on different aspects of technology within an organization.  ON DEMAND focuses on all the big things in digital document production arena.  The info360: AIIM Expo reaches out to providing the information management industry with technologies and strategies to “capture, manage, share, access, and store documents and digital data.”

As someone who is more focused on content rather than the document production aspect, I will mainly be headed over to the AIIM events.   In specific, I am heading over to sessions about content creation, how to access content easily, how to share content, and also a session on e-discovery.  However, so long as my pass allows me, I plan toto wander through the ON DEMAND expo hall to see “the next big thing” in both areas.

For those of you in Philadelphia, the conference is set for today, April 20th until April 22, 2010 in the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Ok, I’m back to taking notes on the opening keynote entitled, “Use the Downturn to Rethink and Thrive” by Michael Rogers, MSNBC’s “The Practical Futurist” and Technology Expert.

Once I get time to post the entire schedule, let me know if there are any specific subjects you’d like me to blog about and/or any questions you have for any of the presenters.

(Note: I will put in links later.  So check back later.)

Checking In: Making Money, Am Law 200 Jobs, & AIIM Expo

Hey Folks, I apologize about my long absence.  Things have been a little hectic in my life.

Basically, I love what I do.  I love reading about the legal industry, keeping up-to-date with blogs and social media, passing on advice about job openings and reviewing resumes and cover letters.

…but I need to start making money.  (I have law student loans to pay!)

From the feedback I’ve heard, I think that I’m offering a useful service, especially with the Am Law listings.  Therefore, I’m putting the question out to you dear readers, how can I best monetize it?  What would be a fair price?  What would I need to change to charge?  (E.g., more consistent schedule, etc.)  Or, on the other side of things, how can I best market my job board?

Once I start taking on freelance clients, it’s hard for me to also maintain my own websites.  Unless I can figure out a way to crowdsource the funding for this site so that I can continue to produce and expand the content, I think the best option for me will be to dedicate my skills to one brand’s success (brand = law firm).

Your thoughts – in comments or in an e-mail (melissa at recruiteresq dot com) – are appreciated.

The Am Law 200 Jobs

I know that I’ve mentioned this before: I *am* working on them.  I’m also trying to figure out a better way to present them on the site without using Google Docs.  I figured out how to create a table with sorting capabilities on the front-end of my site.  No more logging in, going to external sites, etc.  With all of that work, however, I haven’t completely finished updating the Am Law 200 Jobs.  But maybe later tonight I’ll publish what I have – Am Law 200 Jobs (Firms beginning with A – H).

(Note*: I’ve also decided that I’ll post the Am Law job listings twice per year for the general public.  Registered users will have access to the archives of these public listings.)



I’m going to be blogging from the AIIM Expo over the next few days.  In case you haven’t checked it out, take a look at the site.  I’ll have a post later tonight about which talks I plan to see, which talks I want to see, and how I’m kinda bummed that I missed the pre-conference certificate sessions.  I went last year and I can highly recommend the Enterprise 2.0 certificate program and Hanns Kohler-Kruner as a teacher.  You can also take a look at when this course is offered other times through out the year at AIIM’s website.

For those in the Philly area, there’s a Tweetup this week.  You should all come out!
