This is the one thing every consultant should look for in an IT consulting company.

#WeAreOmni Staffing Culture

There has never been a better time to be a technology consultant. The technology talent crunch is real, thanks to the rapid evolution of technology, the competition between companies for top IT talent and the limited number of professionals with sought-after technological skills. That means that if you're an IT consultant, you've got a lot of choices. Agencies are after you. Corporations want you. Small to mid-size businesses need you. Recruiters are banging down your door. So how do you know which opportunities to pursue? The short answer? Work for the technology consulting company that prioritizes your happiness. That might sound trite but consultant happiness is important for a consulting firm, says Omni Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist Kaycee Whitaker.

You've been at your job for a while, and, on paper, it looks great: your job pays well, the benefits are good and you've negotiated a flexible schedule. All of these things are great and you're grateful for them but there's a problem: you're bored. Maybe you've been doing the work long enough that it's not fulfilling.

You've got a great job in IT – you're full-time, you get good benefits and you're well paid, but you're bored. Maybe you've climbed the ladder as far as you can at your job.

Or maybe you're just starting out but you don't know where you should look for work.

Self-Driving Cars: Inside the Machine

Artificial Intelligence Culture

Instead of convincing you to trust or avoid a self-driving car, or debating timeline predictions, let's leave that drama to the thousands of other blogs for now. Let's get a little adventurous and pop the hood instead... Can you spot the AI Brain in these pictures?    That was a trick question. Despite the mesmerizing sound of the idea that there's an 'AI brain' inside the car driving it around like some sort of friendly terminator robot that's been tricked into being a chauffeur, the reality is that self-driving cars today are just putting together many simple little tricks. However, it will have a few extra computers to help with some of the simple math and added hardware.

Omni in Your Community

#WeAreOmni Community Culture

In 2015, I made the transition from teaching marketing to high school students to managing marketing efforts for Omni. There are days I miss the impact I made in the classroom and the connections I made. So, when the opportunity came up this past year to volunteer in my son’s second grade class as a Junior Achievement rep I said yes without hesitation.

2017 Tech Year in Review

#WeAreOmni Culture

As we call it a wrap on 2017, I asked our team for their insight on the biggest things to happen in tech during the year. They knew the drill. I asked them the same question last year around this time in regard to 2016. In typical fashion, I was given the “just share this” line from a consultant…cough, cough…Joshua Szuslik. Others added a bit more to their responses. Let’s find out what they had to share.

If I asked you to rattle off cities that come to mind when you think of startups, I bet you may list: San Francisco, Austin, New York, LA, Boston, Denver, or some of the other major names. All those locations would make wonderful places to get your startup off the ground, but more entrepreneurs are realizing the challenges those markets produce as well: the inflated cost of living & doing business and heavy competition. 

A Blockchain Story

Culture #WeAreOmni Software Development

It’s July 5th, I’m on the phone with Tony Sebion, a Director at Omni and the company idea guy, and I have no idea what Solidity is or how a Smart Contract really works. The conversation was lengthy and detailed but the gist was this: Tony drafted Kevin Brey and myself to build his social object/technical proof-of-concept for That Conference - an Ethereum blockchain-based betting application with a commercial music streaming device, smart contracts to broker the game, and a mobile-friendly app for users to register, place bets, watch the game, and win cryptocurrency.

A Day in the Life of a Talent Development Specialist at Omni

#WeAreOmni Culture

I have friends from high school that followed their passions from very young ages and have had very successful careers. I have always admired that and wondered how they did it? Why was I not like that? To find a career that you are passionate about is a gift. To find a career that also leaves you fulfilled and rewarded is priceless. While my chosen profession did not come to me until my mid 20’s, I am forever thankful that I finally found my passion in talent acquisition.
