Pink Slip Party Next Week! Updates and Jobs

Our next Pink Slip Party is just around the corner (okay, well, around the corner and down the hall…it’s next week, but you get my point), and we’ll be at the Post Bar in Novi on Thursday, July 15th 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 gotten word from about a half-dozen new recruiters that want to attend the event for the first time as well as some of the usual suspects. You can get further details on LinkedIn or on our website at 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 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 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 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.

Having recently gone back and looked over our site content, it dawned on me that some of our more recent visitors may have missed some earlier items that would be of benefit to them.  So, just as a quick reminder, it’s a good idea for you to read a few things on our site:

The Pink Slip Party FAQs at

Don’t Be That Guy: The Recliner Principle at

Don’t Be That Guy: Lessons From a Child’s Toy at

Don’t Be That Guy: The 10 Commandments of Networking at

Don’t Be That Guy: The Recruiter Strikes Back at

Don’t Be That Guy: Greedy Networking Guy at

In their own way, each one of those (as well as most of the other content on our site) will help you make the most of our events and be more successful with your networking endeavors in general as you navigate through them to try and build a better connection pool, meet with recruiters and/or candidates, and help you either find someone to hire or help you find a job.

Speaking of jobs and recruiters, consider this your weekly reminder to make sure you’re hitting the Jobs tab in our LinkedIn group: 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:, 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.
