A few years ago we kicked off a BEAN Seattle Pink Slip party…and it was a huge success. We invite both jobseekers and recruiters to a local restaurant or bar. A Pink Slip party is a combination of a job fair (without the booths), social/networking event and happy hour rolled into one! You don't have to be laid off or unemployed to come - anyone looking to network with others, seek a new job, change their career, explore new options, hire someone or mingle can come!
Cost: Jobseekers – Free
Hiring Recruiter - Cost to attend is FREE. Please bring business card to gain entrance.

Jobseekers who would like to:
· Meet recruiters, hiring managers and HR professionals
· Practice their interview skills and elevator pitch in a relaxed environment
· Enjoy a few drinks and commiserate with fellow jobseekers
· Meet others that could help accelerate their job search
· Share their job-hunting experience with others
· Pick up tips and learn new ways to improve your job search
· Get a job.
Recruiters, HR Professionals and Hiring Managers who would like to:

Tip for Jobseekers: To maximize your opportunities, come with an open mind and speak with both recruiters AND other jobseekers. The most important tool when searching for a job in today's economy is NETWORKING!
