We are getting ready to head into the first day of LegalTech West Coast - we'll have more info on that soon. In the meantime, here's a reminder of the "Green Your Career" breakfast that Monica Bay of Law Technology News will be hosting tomorrow at the LA Convention Center. Here's the information on the event...
Law Technology News and lawjobs are hosting a "Green Your Career" networking breakfast, from 7:45--8:45 a.m. on June 25th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event is to support the many people that have lost their jobs in the legal industry and/or having a hard time finding a job. If your organization is lucky enough to have positions open, please join them to get a look at some candidates. If you are currently a job seeker, take advantage of this free opportunity to meet with firms/companies. The beginning of the event will be a networking breakfast and then there will be roundtable discussions with industry thought leaders.
Vendors - If you have a position open, or would just like to support Law Technology News and lawjobs by sending/providing gifts cards for the attendees at the event, please contact Law Technology News at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Monica Bay, Editor-in-Chief of Law Technology News for spearheading this event!
Here are highlights from Monica's post, but you can find it in its entirety here.
"This erratic economy has been tough on everybody, but none more so than the members of our legal technology community who have lost their jobs. It's difficult, scary, and challenging for even the most self-confident professionals. On day 2 (Thursday June 25) we (Law Technology News and law.jobs) will host a very informal, free "Green Your Career" networking breakfast, from 7:45--8:45 a.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The event is FREE. Job seekers will be encouraged to post their resumes on lawjobs.com, and all firms/vendors who attend will get free access to lawjobs.com (for a limited period, of course).
Please come, whether you need a job, or just want to offer encouragement. And if you are coming to show support, please bring along a gift card (you can pick them up at most supermarkets or drug stores), so we can give a day brightener "party favor" to each job seeker. It can be just a few dollars (or more if you can tithe a bit more generously) -- to a national "chain" such as Starbucks, Target, Macy's, Chevron, Von's, movies, SuperCuts -- you get the picture. Something practical and upbeat that will lift spirits! (If you can't attend and want to send a gift card, mail them to us c/o Law Technology News, 120 Broadway, 5th floor, NYC 10271.)
Job seekers: Come for warmth, support and new contacts! If you e-mail us at email@example.com, we'll have a badge ready for you (and that will help us make sure we have enough coffee and danish). But you can also just show up.
Firms/vendors: If you do have a spot open, what a better place to find great talent? And even if you don't, you might tomorrow -- so bring lots of business cards. And as an added incentive for technology vendors: We will raffle off a wonderful lunch or dinner with moi (you can even use the word "solution" and I will promise to try not to cringe) where you can tell me about your company's plans, products and services and get a great meal on LTN!
BE THERE OR BE SQUARE! E-mail LTN at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
