It’s almost here…Pink Slip Party time.
This Thursday, we take over The Majestic Theater for one of our (in)famous events. We’ve got sponsors coming. We’ve got recruiters coming. We’ve got people looking for jobs coming. We’ve got people looking to expand their professional network coming. We’ve got people who are just curious showing up to see what’s up.
Should be a great night, and you’ll hear more about that tonight during our live broadcast, so let’s get to some details…
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.
Like everything we do, these events are completely free to attend. Recruiters, please send us an email no later than end of day Tuesday (tomorrow!) letting us know that you’re coming so that we can have badges waiting for you. Job seekers, do the same with your resume, and we’ll get it out to the recruiters that we know are coming.
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/

Oh, of course we have some blog entries for you to read.
From time to time, I forget to take my own advice, and that just happened recently. I always tell people that they have to remember that you get to call the first mistake a learning experience. That even the worst of experiences has something positive for you to take away. And I just “I could’ve had a V-8″ smacked myself in the forehead on Friday when I realized how true this was to one of the nastier experiences I’ve had in the past two years… Check out The Silver Lining at http://www.itinthed.com/16794/the-silver-lining/ for more.
