Wall Street Pink Slip Party

A Peek Inside the Wall Street Pink Slip Party

Could it be an out-of-workplace trend in the making? The Wall Street Pink Slip party was packed with job hunters and recruiters alike, and the only way to distinguish who had what the other person wanted was the color around the party-goers' wrists. Neon green bracelets were given to guests looking to hire, while red bracelets were donned by those looking for work.

It may sound like a job fair, but this party was held in a bar with adult beverages to loosen up the buttoned-up crowd. The parties have packed in hundreds of people looking to network their way into new careers. After the close of one of the worst months for job layoffs ever, I can see these industry "parties" gaining popularity inside and outside the Wall Street crowd.

that's not a bad idea! gives people another opportunity to look for a job and gives the restaurant its being held at business as well

Ah, the return of the Pink Slip Party. These were common in the Bay Area in the late 90s. I recall one where a poor dot com layoff victim regaled us with the tale of her "severance" - several hundred dollars in wine.com gift certificates.

i like the concept - i just wish that i knew how to get my fiance there since he's a recruiter and he could help with staffing...or even get a job himself.
