Updates and Jobs

A big thank you to everyone who made it out to our event this past Thursday at the BlackFinn in Royal Oak.  Nice to see some familiar faces, as well as quite a few new ones make it out to be there.  Not that “new faces” are all that uncommon these days, since in the past year the group has more than doubled in size.

Right before our Pink Slip Party at Commune in August of 2009, our LinkedIn group welcomed in the 800th member.  Just before our event at the BlackFinn last week, we had our 1800th member join.  More than a thousand new members in a year…wow.  A most sincere thank you to everyone that comes to our events, participates in our group, and helps make our group continue to grow and serve a purpose – to help provide the IT community in the metro Detroit area a place to go where they won’t be hounded by sales people, and can make connections and build relationships with the best people in the industry.  We look forward to seeing even more of you at our upcoming events…

Thursday, September 16th: BlackFinn, Royal Oak.  Another smaller, more casual event.  Details are on LinkedIn: and on our site at

Thursday, October 21st: Post Bar, Novi.  Our next Pink Slip Party event.  Details are on LinkedIn: and on our site at

Hope you can make it.

As always, make sure you’re hitting that Jobs tab in our LinkedIn group on a regular basis to catch jobs as they get posted.  You can get there by clicking here:, or just by hopping into the LinkedIn group and hitting “Jobs” up in the group’s navigation bar.
