Last Call for Recruiters, Pink Slip Party Tomorrow Night, IT in the D and More!
We also had a great episode of IT in the D on Monday night, we’ve got blogs, and other than that, we’re just checking items off the list to make sure Thursday night’s all set.
So let’s get rolling…
As always…our next event.
And it’s going to be a good one.
More than seven hundred people came together at St Andrews Hall to help people find jobs in the metro Detroit information technology industry.
Over 100 recruiters and hiring managers were in attendance looking to do just that.
You can read recaps of that event here – http://www.ITinTheD.com/5084/the-31313-pink-slip-party-recap/ or here – http://blog.thedetroithub.com/2013/03/19/it-in-the-d-made-job-hunting-awesome-at-st-andrews-hall/
Things are shaping up for another great event tomorrow night. Looking forward to seeing everyone there. We’ve got a bunch of job seekers and a ton of recruiters already in the mix.
Details are here on the site: http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/, on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ITintheD or over on Meetup at http://meetup.ITinTheD.org, or you can read about it over on the CBS Detroit website here: http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/09/04/ITintheD-org-sets-another-pink-slip-party/
Recruiters, yes, today’s the last day to let us know you’re coming so that we can have badges waiting for you. That’s the main reason. We strongly recommend that you send us an email to contact@ITinTheD.com with the name(s) of whoever is attending from your company, as well as whatever your top two or three needs are. We’re going to try and keep a master list among the three of us so that as job seekers come to us, we can make sure we send them in the right direction…and if we don’t know what you need, then we won’t be able to send them your way.
And we’ve got all kinds of cool things up our sleeve for this one…you know us, we’ve always got to take things a step further each time. If I were you, I’d plan on hanging out until past 7:00, that’s for sure.
Monday night’s IT in the D show was pretty damned great. We had Brad from Grand Circus and Jay from Ann Arbor Give Camp in chatting with us in-studio, and couldn’t have possibly asked for thing to go any better.
