If you are a professional looking for work, and you’d rather pound the pavement for work on Labor Day than grill a burger, you might want to attend the Pinkslip Mixer in Pasadena.
From 2 to 5 p.m. at a spot called Bar Celona, 46 E. Colorado Blvd., organizers are planning a multi-city/state job mixer, bringing together other Pinkslip mixers in other cities and state via live video streams and online media.
At the very least, it’s a chance to mix with people in the same boat – unemployed or underemployed. And it could mean a chance to talk to a recruiter.
I attended one myself, and ended up doing a story on it. It seemed like a great way to make contacts, and share your job experience with others. The idea is to “pay it forward.” You can look out for jobs that might fit people you meet. And they’ll do the same for you.
