Description:

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!
