Twitter #pinkslipparty coming to McHenry

What is it:
A #pinkslipparty is an informal networking opportunity for anyone who has lost a job, is in danger or losing a job, knows someone who lost a job, or would like to help someone who has lost a job.

Where is it:
Usually held at a conference room, public house, church basement, or any space that is free or donated. As of this moment the location is still TBD. See http://purplepeople.pbwiki.com/McHenry-pinkslipparty for updates on where, or donate a space.

The current #pinkslipparty in McHenry is scheduled for March 6th 2009 at 6:00PM.

With record unemployment numbers we all wish to do everything we can to help our neighbors and community.

How can I help:
Jobs are not found in the classified ads they are found when one person connects with another person. Come, meet, mingle, and network. Collect business cards pass out a business cards, maybe next week you will learn of an opening that is perfect for one of those contacts.

Community leaders this is a great opportunity to help support your community.

Press, this is that human interest story everyone needs to hear. A community gathering around itself in a time of need. Job seekers are not asking for a hand-out, just an opportunity.
