We're just a week away from our next casual networking event in the back room of the BlackFinn in Royal Oak next Thursday (the 24th).  As always, we're expecting a great mix of recruiters, job seekers and those looking...

Couple of quick reminders, followed by the usual flood of jobs from our LinkedIn group...and there have been a *lot* this week! The dates for our upcoming events are as follows... Thursday, June 24th: One of our casual networking events at...

Greetings again from ITintheD.com! We're changing things up a bit, and making the website the focal point for these email blasts...mostly because the limitations that LinkedIn puts on the emails kind of handcuffs us on what we can include, and...

Hey folks, don't forget that there's a casual networking event tonight in the back room of the BlackFinn in Royal Oak.  Looks like there's going to be a pretty decent turnout, so we look forward to seeing everyone there. ...

Well, here's an option. Everything we get for our events (business cards, registration cards) comes from OvernightPrints.com. They've got a great little designer system, slick interface, great pricing, and so that's where we...

We're not anal-retentive about RSVPs.  We're also not Social Media Experts. We have our events listed on a number of sites, and we're experimenting with quite a few different locations with just a "presence" - meaning we're there, and we're...

No.  While we really do want to help people, the whole point of our group and our events is "networking", not "being a resume forwarding service".  If you know you can't make it to our Pink Slip Party events,...

Of course.  As long as you're in/around the information technology industry here in metro Detroit, you're more than welcome to attend.  People find jobs at our casual networking events, networking takes place at our Pink Slip Party events.

Ah...'tis the season. The Lions are atrocious, the Pistons are playing like any random high school team could take them, the Tigers and baseball are still months away, and the Red Wings have lost two in a row.  The malls...

Probably, but that's all we can really think of at the moment. Oh, I guess you should be aware that we have a running series of blog entries titled "Don't Be That Guy"...so, yeah, don't be that guy. We look...

No. Please feel free to drop us an email at contact@ITinTheD.com with your resume, and we'll make sure that it gets out to the recruiters that we mentioned up above that are regular participants of our events.

The basics still all apply - show up, sign in, grab a beverage, and start chatting.  For recruiters in particular, we strongly recommend getting to know us quickly, since odds are good we'll be playing traffic ...

Grab a beverage of your choice, relax, and start chatting.  If you need a starting point, start with either Bob, Dave or Jeff.  All of us have photos attached to our profiles here...and since this isn't a...

We usually don't.  However, we're making an exception for the Pink Slip Parties, for several key reasons: We would like to keep tabs on how many people show up for this event versus the guesstimating that we do for our...

Step one is always "relax".  When you walk in, you can either ask the hostess where we're located, or just follow along the bar until you get the back room.  Please take a moment to sign in...

Uhhh...no.  We're not that group. Just like all of our other events, we don't think it's either necessary or good karma to charge people for these, and so we don't.  No cover charges from you, no kickbacks from recruiters when...

Completely unnecessary.  This is a networking event, not a formal job interview.  If it makes you feel more comfortable, sure, I guess you can...but remember, it's in a bar, and you're there to have conversations and make connections.  I...

No. You might want to bring a couple, since there will always be people on hand that might want to take a look at it, or be willing to offer you some tips...but don't plan on handing out copies of...
