Join us for a free KIT List “Friendworking” event on 9/29 in Palo Alto!

24 09 2010

Hello Everyone,

I’ve been wanting to do this event for a long time!

This is an informal meet-up to provide an easy way for people to meet, share job leads, career ideas, get encouraged and have some fun. This event includes all KIT List folks, recruiters, employers, job seekers, consultants and friends.

We’ll also have a panel of experts who will share the classic mistakes job seekers make as well as advanced job search strategies.

While the job search process can be an isolating experience, this is a great way we can use the power of friends helping friends and “Friendwork.” Since the word “networking” can seem uncomfortable or cold, the “Friendwork” idea is much more personal. You come with the attitude of giving and helping others, even if you are looking for a job yourself, and it makes what would be awkward into a positive experience. Hey, a stranger is a friend you just haven’t met yet!

There is NO CHARGE for this event, but you will need to pay for your own drinks or food directly to Bistro 412.

The weather should be nice and warm next week, and Bistro 412 has a large patio area in back that we can fill up nicely (they have heat lamps, too!). This is where I had the SGI Reunion I organized last week, so it’s definitely a good place for friends to mix and mingle.

Also, you can make a voluntary donation at the door of $10 (or whatever amount you wish) for the Red Cross to benefit the San Bruno fire victims. With the generous spirit of the people on the KIT List, this would be a nice way to help our neighbors who were struck by this tragedy.

Please RSVP using this Evite link:

See you there,
