In Case You Thought I Was Kidding…Jobs, Jobs and More Jobs

In my last note, I mentioned that there were a lot of new faces at our event, including new recruiters.

Well, there are currently pages and pages of jobs sitting in the LinkedIn group – – from both recruiters that have been with us since the beginning, as well as some new faces that are showing up to dive into our metro Detroit networking events and the possibilities available at them.  More are showing up every day, too, so if you’ve limited yourself to just reading these notes as they come out on our site, I’d strongly recommend getting into our LinkedIn group and paying attention directly there as well.

Okay, and…seriously…three more got posted while I was writing this.

So,  a few things to remember…

1.  Join the LinkedIn group.

2.  Pay attention to the LinkedIn group.

3.  Pay attention to our Events listings.  They’re located here: We’re changing things up and moving things around a lot this year.  Do not just automatically assume that our events will always be on the same day of the month, or that they’ll always be at the BlackFinn or the Post Novi.  In fact, it’s a much safer bet that we won’t be at one of those two places than it would be that we will.

4.  Come to an event.  They’re free, for cryin’ out loud.  Like we’ve always said, the worst thing that can possibly happen is that you show up, you grab a drink, you hang out for a few, chat with a couple people (make sure at least one of them is one of us that organize things), and decide it’s not for you.  We’re good with that, because at least you’ve tried.  The next one is one of our Pink Slip Party events on February 17th at Snookers in Utica:

The event listing here on our site:

The event listing on LinkedIn:

And don’t forget to read the FAQs:

5.  Read our Don’t Be That Guy entries.  No, seriously…read them.  That’s not a shameless plug to try to increase our page views.  We don’t care about page views, because you’ll notice there’s no advertising anywhere on the site.  Hell, Bob was stunned when I told him we got hundreds of unique users per day since he thought we got about 12.  Including us.  Anyway, we write these things because we’re trying to help.  Most of the time.  Sometimes we’re just trying to take a potshot at someone (hey, at least we’re honest), but even when we’re being snarky, we’re still trying to be helpful.

6.  If you’re actually looking for a job…please, pay attention.  When you read “details on these jobs are available in our LinkedIn group”, that doesn’t mean “Send Dave an email asking for so and so’s email address”.  Go to the LinkedIn group.  Find the position.  Read the details.  Reach out to the recruiter that’s posting the job directly.  They want it.  They expect it.  That’s why they’re posting jobs in the first place.  If you want or need an introduction on LinkedIn, I’m happy to help.  If you find yourself stuck after trying to reach out or don’t know how to get started, then by all means I’m happy to help.  I’m just saying…be a little pro-active and own your own job search.

I’ll climb down off of my soapbox now and get to those jobs I was talking about…
