Updates and Jobs

As I sit here downing my first cup of coffee, two dawning realizations hit me.  The first is that it’s hard to believe that the year is already half over.  Once upon a time, I used to laugh when my grandparents would tell me that time goes by faster as you get older.  I’m not laughing any more.  The second is that with the lateness of our June event and today being a Thursday and the 1st of July, we’re now only two weeks away from our next Pink Slip Party.


Thursday, July 15th is basically just around the corner at this point, and we’ll be at the Post Bar in Novi starting at 5pm.  Three Olives will be back with their promotions team again with drink specials and samples of their latest flavors, and we’ve already started getting emails from new recruiters that want to attend the event for the first time.  You can get further details on LinkedIn http://events.linkedin.com/ITintheD-org-Pink-Slip-Party/pub/317757 or on our website at http://www.ITinTheD.com/608/july-pink-slip-party/.  As with all of our events, there is no charge to attend for recruiters, job seekers, or even just those looking for networking opportunities, and we look forward to seeing you there.

If you’re a recruiter that plans on attending or would like to attend, please drop us a note as soon as possible via contact@ITinTheD.com.  There’s still no charge or anything for you to attend, but we need to know in advance if you’re coming so that we can get a badge printed up for you and have it waiting at our registration table when you get there.  It’s also a good idea to let us know, because we can add you into the distribution list we maintain for recruiters that receive the resumes that folks send in ahead of the event.  And you job seekers out there can send in your resumes to that same contact@ITinTheD.com address for distribution out to the recruiters that have told us they’re coming as well…which helps, because we’ve had some great feedback in the past that interviews wind up taking place even before our event happens through this process.  We’ve taken the time to create a whole set of Frequently Asked Questions about our Pink Slip Party events, and so please take the time to read them at http://www.ITinTheD.com/meet/faq.  These are (much) larger and (slightly) more organized than our smaller, more casual events at the BlackFinn, and so it’s a good idea to make sure that you know what you’re walking in to.

So, get yourself out to the Post Bar in Novi.  Should be a good time, as always.

Speaking of jobs and recruiters, consider this your weekly reminder to make sure you’re hitting the Jobs tab in our LinkedIn group: http://www.linkedin.com/groupAnswers?searchQuestions=&gid=91763&answerCategory=mra&forumID=5&trk=anet_ug_jobs on a regular basis so that you can see these (and more) as they get posted, rather than waiting for them to show up in your inbox.  You can get there from our group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=91763, or the “Job Board” link in the top navigation of our website will get you there as well.  While these are a sampling of the most recent jobs that have been posted in our group, there are more already there…and there always seems to be quite a few that get posted shortly after we send out one of these blasts as well, so make sure you stop by the group today as well.
