Charlotte Center City Partners and Blue Restaurant and Bar are teaming up to present Charlotte's second Pink Slip Party. This one has limited attendance, with RSVP required, to allow more intense networking. We'll have headhunters, direct-hire companies, and recruiting firms on-hand to learn a little bit more about what they do as well as other job seekers to buoy each other through the difficult transition from daily worker to job seeker.
Schedule:
4:00pm – 5:00pm Registration and Networking with Recruiters and HR Representatives
(Top Recruiting Firms in Finance, Accounting, Book Keeping, IT, Project Management, Legal as well as HR Representatives)
5:00pm - 5:45pm 10-Second Introductions
(An opportunity to grow a personal network and get introduced to others attending.)
5:45pm - 6:45pm Ask the Experts
(Small break out sections led by experts to help give advice and let attendees ask questions about resumes, marketing themselves, online networking, and finance.)
We'll provide door prizes and food and drink specials all evening. Live music begins at 7:00pm.

Great idea!!! Although, I'd stay away from too many "drink specials" if I was going to be seriously looking to network!!

My hubby said I should go, but I have a job right now. I really did not want to take the space of one individual who may need that RSVP more than I do. Good luck to everyone who can get in!
