It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another episode of our weekly live broadcast, and we’ve got some fun guests joining us tonight.  We’ve got some blog entries for you to read, we’re only two weeks away from one of our (in)famous Pink Slip Party events, we have a request for help that we’d really appreciate any and all efforts to dive in on, and the usual fun and excitement in our LinkedIn group, on our Facebook page and more, so let’s go ahead and get started…

DSC_0004bAs always, we start with our event updates.

Our next event will be a Pink Slip Party event, taking place on Thursday, March 19th at The Majestic Theater.  Yep, we’re just a matter of about two weeks away from this happening!

If you’re not familiar with our Pink Slip Party events…you should be.  They’re on a whole different level from our casual networking social events like the one we had at Blackfinn last month.  Our PSP events see as many as a thousand people show up, including over a hundred and fifty recruiters, tons of people specifically looking for jobs, and a whole bunch of folks just looking to meet people in the industry and extend their professional networks.

There’s a whole lot more information over at http://www.itinthed.com/16716/pink-slip-party-thursday-march-19-2015-at-majestic-theater/, so go give that a read.

Main_1280x540_2_MeetWe’re doubling down on events starting in April and running two casual networking social events each month.  And it’s no joke, we’re starting that trend off on Wednesday, April 1st.  So, those of you who have told us that Thursday nights can be a pain for you to get to…we’re getting rid of that excuse for you, and we’d better see you there.

Details on all of our events can be found here on the site – http://www.itinthed.com/meet/, on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ITinTheD, or in our Meetup group – http://www.meetup.com/ITintheD/

Our friends at Penguicon are setting up something really cool with a group that does replacement limbs, hands, etc., for children. They NEED to get their hands on some 3D printers for their event taking place April 24-26 at the Westin in Southfield, and time is running short. If you, your company, or whatever can hook them up with some to borrow and use for that weekend and this awesome cause, contact chair@penguicon.org IMMEDIATELY.

mar2We’ll be talking about all of that and more during tonight’s live broadcast as we hit Episode 81, for sure.

We’re being joined by some great guests tonight, too:

Folkteller comes in to educate us about Nain Rouge and their new comic.

ComiqueCon joins us to tell us all about a conference going on later this year heavily focused on women.

The Detroit Bus Company joins us to talk about some fun and excitement they recently went through, as well as the great project they’ve got underway.

Main_728x307_1_ListenSo join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by calling 313.462.0107 or firing up Twitter and hitting @ITintheD during the show.  We love audience participation, so come along and play with us!  Not sure how to listen live?  We’ve got instructions for you over here: http://www.itinthed.com/listen/how-to-listen/.  Missed any of our previous episodes?  We’ve got a page for that, too: http://www.itinthed.com/listen/it-in-the-d-show-archives/, including last week’s episode at http://www.itinthed.com/16701/episode-80-w3r-daily-detroit-pink-slip-party-sponsors/

How about some blog entries…

6a00d8341c630a53ef011570747b32970c-800wiYou’re judged by who you associate with…and even I forget that sometimes.  Go read Guilt By Association: Never Let the Vampire In at http://www.itinthed.com/5734/guilt-by-association/

Overblown Sense of Entitlement Guy is one of our favorite types of people.  And yes, that was sarcasm.  Go read http://www.itinthed.com/1126/dont-be-that-guy-overblown-sense-of-entitlement-guy/ to find out why.

It’s a small world, and so lying is about one of the dumbest things you can do.  Pants On Fire Guy tells a few specific stories as to why: http://www.itinthed.com/4849/dont-be-that-guy-pants-on-fire-guy/
