Well, JobCircle.com has done just that. They have put a fun twist on job fairs...they call them Pink Slip Parties! As JobCircle.com puts it: "You might say that this is a casual version of a job fair, minus the tables and the lines!" Not to mention a cocktail to boost the networking.
The Party is held at a pub or tavern to set the right mood. You can check out the JobCircle.com website to see the companies that have signed up for the event and the types of positions available. And it only costs $10 for job seekers.
JobCircle.com is the largest independently owned and operated job board in the Mid-Atlantic region, connecting employers and jobseekers in PA, NJ, NY, DE, MD and DC.
Though I'm not looking for work in those areas, I find JobCirlce.com offers resources that are helpful and so I follow them on Twitter.
If I were in the area, I'd definitely attend a Pink Slip Party.
