Event: Stanford-Jobnob SF Happy Hour (7/16): connecting jobseekers with startups
Hey Startups: Strapped for cash? Buy a few drinks and find free help!
Hey Stanford Jobseekers: Frustrated with your job search? Meet cool new startups!
Startups and Stanford alums, come "Jobnob" with cool new startups and other job seekers at this informal networking happy hour where unemployed people who want to keep their skills sharp are matched up with startups that could use their help.
Note to the Harvard folks: we are also having an event just for Harvard alumni on 8/18, but you are welcome to come to this one on 7/16- it's open to ANY startups (you do NOT need to be a Stanford alum)
Cash Conscious Startups-- are you willing to buy a smart, talented, unemployed person a drink? Come with one or two specific projects that you need accomplished and we’ll help you find the perfect person to get the job done. And if you get funded you can always hire them!
Stanford Alum Job Seekers*-- are you willing to volunteer at least 5 hours a week for free or minimal pay? Help out a startup and you'll get a leg up on the competition, keep your skills sharp and have some good experience to put on your resume.
*Please note that this event is only open to Stanford alumni jobseekers.
