If you’re not familiar with our Pink Slip Party events…you should be. They’re on a whole different level from our casual networking social events like the one we had at Blackfinn last week. Our PSP events see as many as a thousand people show up, including over a hundred and fifty recruiters, tons of people specifically looking for jobs, and a whole bunch of folks just looking to meet people in the industry and extend their professional networks.
Some of the details are the same. They still start at 5pm. There’s still no cover charge at the door for you to walk in. Still no speeches, no agendas, no sales pitches for you to have to listen to, nothing like that. No MLM people, no insurance folks, no fruit basket salespeople. Just professionals in and around the information technology industry. With over 1,200 people having found jobs through our events…well, we’re not saying you have to be here, but we’re definitely saying these are the best opportunities you’ll have to meet the people who will help you move your career forward…maybe not today, maybe not even tomorrow…but they’re the ones you want to turn to when it matters.
A few things are different though. Recruiters all get lanyards with a badge so they’re easily identifiable to those looking for gigs, and people looking for gigs also get a nametag so that they’re able to get picked out of the crowd as well. Also unlike our other events, we have sponsors – and companies looking to hire and get in front of a ton of people, here’s your best opportunity. Our sponsors are the only companies who get to setup a table (or hey, if you’ve got a trade show booth, drag that in and set that up if you want) and really have a presence at the event. So go hit our Sponsors page at http://www.itinthed.com/sponsors/ and touch base with us. We limit these on purpose, and we’re already almost completely full less than a week after announcing the date…that should tell you something right there.
