Career Opportunities: The High-Tech Career Handbook reaches 100th podcast
September 2005 brings 2 major milestones for Career Opportunities: The
High-Tech Career Handbook, hosted by Douglas E. Welch of Los Angeles,
California. Friday, September 2, 2005, brings the 100th episode of the
podcast, which focuses on the specific ins and outs of a high-tech career,
and September 24th, 2005 will mark its 1 year anniversary.
The podcast has proven popular with people in all avenues of the high tech
world, from beginners to those with years of experience because it offers a
realistic look at a chaotic and constantly changing work world. Each week,
Welch produces two episodes drawing on new and archival material from his
print column, Career Opportunities, which has appeared in the San
Diego-based Computoredge magazine for 9 years.
A 20+ year veteran of the high-tech world, working at a variety of companies
including Walt Disney Imagineering and Hollywood Online, Welch started
producing his shows within weeks of the initial creation of podcasting,
joining a short list of 10-12 other podcasting pioneers such as Adam Curry¹s
Daily Source Code and Dave Winer¹s Morning Coffee Notes. Current estimates
put the number of podcasts around 9,000 in a wide variety of topic areas.
The Career Opportunities podcast is a member of the Tech Podcasts Network
(http://techpodcasts.com), a cooperative group of technology-related
podcasts dedicated to promoting the best in technology programming. The
podcast, including archives of all 100 episodes, is available on the web at

Podcasts are niche, radio-like programs which computer users can download to
their computer or MP3 player for listening. Unlike radio, though, the user
has total control over which shows they choose and when they listen to them.
Listeners can also ³subscribe² to podcasts, which allows new shows to be
downloaded to their computer automatically. Visit the Wikipedia entry on
podcasting for more information. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast)
