Down Drinks and Land a Job at The Crescent's 'Pink Slip Party'
Leave it to Beverly Hills' Crescent Hotel to try and drum up business and new jobs for partygoers by hosting a "Pink Slip Party" on the first Tuesday of each month. Apparently sipping $5 pink martinis and shopping your resume is the hip version of unemployment, spinning depression into succession as only the west coast can.
Since the parties on the hotel's patio began in early February, recruiters have been brought together with motivated jobseekers over cocktails and half-priced appetizers, leading to some success stories already and many more in the works. It's an affront to the formality of a typical application and interview process, and rightly so as times like these mean more creativity and enthusiasm will get you ahead of the pack and perhaps right into that precious new job, after only a cheap drink.
If hanging out in a hotel in Beverly Hills sounds like an awesome alternative to sitting at home and scrolling through Craigslist, then start updating your resume; the next Pink Slip party is Tuesday, April 7.
