Our Pink Slip Party sponsors:

Arrow Strategies – should be a familiar name to most people at our events.  They’ve been heavily involved with us for years, and were sponsors the first time we hit Saint Andrews Hall on 3/13/13.  Additionally, Steve Gaura was on our IT in the D show a few weeks ago, and you can catch what he had to say about the industry as a whole, the types of positions his company is always looking to fill, and more over at  Steve in particular is truly part of the “core” of what our group is and does, so always keep him and Arrow Strategies in mind when you’re looking.

Brightwing – – was also a sponsor back on 3/13/13, and had a great group of folks there last night as well.  Additionally, Russ Dotson has been a crucial part of our Support The Troops activities over the past few years, and was a guest on our very first installment of the IT in the D show.  You can listen to that episode here –, and then another when April and Elyse popped in over at

Strategic Staffing Solutions – is a relative newcomer to our events, but that doesn’t make us any less grateful or appreciative for their support of what we do.  They’re based downtown right off Campus Martius, and even though you don’t hear as much about them as you do some of the other companies that are located in that same circle, they’re doing really great things and always looking for great people.

Logicalis – is also fairly new to our events, but they’re getting more engaged ever since a long-time member of ours who has been coming to our events for quite some time took a job there earlier this year.  They specialize in global virtualization solutions, and have some really cool offerings.  They’re also looking for some bright minds to join their team, so give them a look and keep them in mind.

MEDC – we do a lot with MEDC, not necessarily as a part of “ events”, but Bob and I have spoken at a number of their Shifting Gears classes and really enjoy doing our part to help people in career transition with our 10 Commandments of Networking presentation.  MEDC is far more than just the Shifting Gears program though, and they have a lot of great things going on all across the state in a number of capacities.

New Horizons – has been coming to our events forever, and they’ve helped literally hundreds of our folks find grant funding for training classes.  So it wasn’t really a surprise that they wanted to get involved, and they did so in a great way – one attendee at our event last night is now the winner of a free technical training class!  Want to find out if you’re the winner?  Listen to our IT in the D show live on Monday night as they’ll be in-studio with us to make the announcement.

The Great Lakes Technology Showcase – will be taking place November 4-6, 2013, and is focused heavily on the telecommunications industry.  If that’s in your line of work or area of interest, be sure to check them out.

Bartech – has been coming to our events for years as well, with different people taking point as recruiters move between companies just like the rest of us in the information technology field.  Always looking to hire talented people into new positions, definitely give them a call as you’re starting to look.
