Our guests for tonight are going to be talking about their own events coming up that you’ll want to know about that they’re running, and we’ve even got a couple familiar names from our events showing up to chat as well. We’ve got blog entries. There are jobs posted. We’re going to start doing multiple events per month beginning in April. All sorts of fun on our Facebook page. You ought to be following us on Twitter…
…yeah, all kinds of things going on. So let’s get to some details…
As always, we start with our event updates.
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.
