Tallahassee Pink Slip Party

Published Tuesday, May 5, 2009 10:11 AM
The local business owner of Eventions decided to host the first Tallahassee area Pink Slip Party. I attended (as a recruiter) and felt that the event was a great idea for those who have either lost their job and were looking for a new job or opportunity for income, or for those who were graduating college in the area and looking for the same. Media coverage was quite extensive as well. Personally, I saw stories about the event, prior to its being held, in the Tallahassee Democrat, on WTXL and on Twitter/Facebook in our area. Sponsors of the event included: Club Rayne; Smooth Jazz 97.9; American Classifieds and more. Many local businesses provided door prizes as well. The event was hosted at Club Rayne and from what I could see, was quite a success. Many employers and recruiters were there to greet the friendly faces of those who needed to secure an income fast. Resumes were critiqued on site, and massages were available as well. I gladly would have had one of those, however, I was quite busy meeting and greeting attendees and was able to meet a few that I might be able to work with in the future. All in all, the night went well and my congratulations to Eventions for yet another great event. The next one will be held the night of Tuesday, June 23, 2009. From what I hear, seating is limited for this one, so respond early to ensure that you can attend. You can find out more at: www.tallypinkslipparty.com or by calling: (850) 222-0200.
