FairfieldCountyJobs.com Teams with Leading HR Consulting Firm to Throw Pink Slip Party for Unemployed
Local networking event helps connect job seekers with employers
Trumbull, CT [February 11, 2009]: Have you been laid off or just worried about losing your job? Well FairfieldCountyJobs.com wants to help. On Wednesday evening February 25th, 2009 from 5:30 – 8:30pm at Black Bear Saloon in South Norwalk, hundreds of job seekers and over a dozen employers will converge for the region’s first ever Pink Slip Party. The event is a combination of cocktail party and job fair. Instead of job seekers visiting tables like at a job fair, recruiters and candidates mingle in a casual setting to encourage networking. Food and discounted drinks will be available.
OperationsInc, a local HR outsourcing firm is the exclusive sponsor of the event. They offer a job search workshop called ‘Job Search Essentials’ which they are promoting to job seekers. The firm will also have career counselors on-hand to help with resume advice as well as representing several of their clients who presently are hiring.
To attend the pink Slip Party job seekers must register online at http://fairfieldcountyjobs.eventbrite.com/
(Tickets are $9 and must be paid for online via Credit Card or PayPal.)
Employers may attend for free although a limited number of spots are available. To register your company call: (800) 399-6651.
“We are extremely excited about an event like this”, says Chris Russell, President and Founder of FairfieldCountyJobs.com. “Job seekers are looking for ways to network and reach companies who are hiring and we hope the party fosters those connections.” Russell adds that the party is limited to the first 250 people who signup. “Local Job Seekers need every possible available outlet to increase their chances for landing a new position”, said David Lewis, CEO of OperationsInc.
“We are excited to support this event and many others in the future as a way to help those in our area who are in-transition.”
