Over 60 Recruiters. 30+ Companies. Free Beer. Pink Slip Party Tonight!

Well, it doesn’t get too much better than this.

We’ve got over 60 recruiters from more than 30 companies confirmed to be at our event tonight.  We’ve had scores of resumes come in from job seekers.  We’ve got attorneys from the IT Section of the Michigan Bar Association coming.  Dice.com has thrown some cash our way, and so make sure you read this so that you’re up to speed on the free drinks and our disclaimers for the evening.  Got some media love this morning from WXYZ-7, the local ABC affiliate, and our inbox really started blowing up.

All in all, it’s shaping up to be one of our best events yet, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone there.  So let’s talk about some details…You can find details on the event:

(I swear to you right now…if anyone says “I can’t find what time the event starts” or “I don’t know where it’s at”, they’re banned…)

Short answer: Post Bar.  Novi.  5pm.  Be there.

Now, seriously – you really, really need to read our note about the drinks tonight.  No seriously, go read it.  You’re going to be bound by our disclaimers anyway, so you might as well know what they are.

From a “networking 101” perspective, you might want to check out my Thoughts On Basements and Networks that went live yesterday.  I’ve already gotten some really great feedback from people that have found it to be a valuable read.

Now, for you folks out there that will be coming to your first Pink Slip Party event, here’s some suggested reading material:

…and, of course…where it all started…Don’t Be That Guy: http://www.ITinTheD.com/category/dbtg/

Now, in addition to all of the jobs that have already been covered in previous notes with job postings, there are plenty more that have come in.  I’m going to be a little less flexible this time around and stick with the jobs that have been posted by recruiters that have told us that they’re coming tonight.  There are more than that posted in our LinkedIn group, but like we always tell people…being in the group is only step one.  You have to make it to the events to foster the relationships and actually get the most out of what we’re doing here, and that’s what we’re looking to encourage – after all, you’re going to want to see jobs from people that you’ll actually get to talk to tonight right?


So, here we go…

So…in all honesty folks…no matter what kind of gig you’re looking for…if it’s in or around the IT industry, someone at our event tonight is going the be hiring for it.

Oh, and did we mention free beer?  And the Frequently Asked Questions that you should read?

See you there!
