Are you using your benefits to further your SQL Server skills? The other day, the company I work for (Scalability Experts) had a benefits meeting where open enrollment for insurance and other similar things were discussed. Since we are a small company, we outsource HR/Payroll/Benefits and I discovered a new benefit that I was unaware of previously. Perhaps you have it too. THere is an Educational Assistance Benefit of $1500/year to help with courses that count towards a degree. I was somewhat familiar with that one. There is also an Educational Assistance benefit that is geared for attending seminars (especially those offered by a Professional Association). The benefit offered through our plan is $500/year to spend on educational seminars. There is some criteria the seminar must meet under our benefit structure such as: helping develop skills that you use in your line of work and it can't be in-house or custom training. That sounds like a perfect fit for a PASS Summit Pre-Con! Of course your organization may have different criteria and /or benefit amounts, but don't let that education benefit go to waste. There is a great selection of Pre-Cons to choose from that offer a full day of learning for only $395! Tap into your benefits and receive some great learning practically for free!
