We’re just two weeks away from our next Pink Slip Party!  It will take place on Thursday, October 21st at the Post Bar in Novi, and starts at 5pm.  Plenty of free parking, lots of space available, and we’re working on nailing down promotions, drink specials, etc., that will be going on for the event.  So, keep an eye out for future updates for details.

If you want to RSVP for the event, or just get some more information, there are a few places you can go…

We’ve already heard from a lot of recruiters that will be there, including quite a few new ones this time around.  If you’re a recruiter that wants to attend, please let us know as soon as possible by dropping us an email at  Just like the job seekers, there are absolutely no fees, no covers, no charges whatsoever for you…we just like to know who’s coming ahead of time so that we can have badges printed up for you to make it easier for the job seekers to find you at the event.

We look forward to seeing everyone at this event.

Now…since we took last week off from sending our normal weekly email blasts (and, laughably, a few emails came in asking us if we were all okay…yes, we’re fine…we just get crazy from time to time.  It happens.  That’s also why this is going out a day early, just to be safe) there are a lot of jobs to talk about out on our LinkedIn group:
