Last night, Jobspring Chicago hosted our 7th Tech In Motion event! We had a great turnout as our all-women panel gave helpful insight and suggestions to our presenting start-up,Zipfit.me.
Here's an action shot of the Jobspring crew on the way to the event. We've had the luck of stumbling upon a shopping cart to help us haul our gear to the event. How classy do we look?!

Sloane Barbour, the Division Manager at Jobspring New York, is on the executive board of a great not-for-profit organization, Camp Interactive.
This past Wednesday, CampInteractive held a benefit to raise money for the children's organization, and several of the Jobspring recruiters came out to support the initiative and network within the community.
The event was extremely successful and had a phenomenal turnout: CampInteractive raised $3500 and everyone had a great time!
CampInteractive (CI) is a not-for-profit organization that empowers inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology.
We believe that when urban teenagers step back into nature and forward into technology they gain invaluable skills, heighten their academic standing, and begin to realize more of life's possibilities.

One of the things we like to do here at Jobspring Chicago is really get involved in the start-up tech community which is a big reason we formed the Tech In Motion events series. Tech in Motion is an event where we showcase various start-ups and have a group of panelists critique the idea, giving some insight and hopefully help the start-up tweak their idea and get the idea launched. We are actually hosting one of these events this evening!
One of the masterminds behind Tech In Motion, Tim Yandel, also likes to share some of the insight that he's gained over the past 9 years of technical recruiting in various cities around the US.
This morning, he held a seminar geared towards advising start-ups about how to recruit, hire and retain developers to work for them. There was a great turnout and it invoked some great conversations surrounding the topics of discussion.

Joeseph Schurig, a Lead Recruiter on the Open Source Development Team, just placed Adam in a Senior Ruby on Rails role in New York City!
From the day Adam walked into Jobspring New York, the Open Source Development team set him up with several interviews, all of which Adam considered to be potential employers. Exactly 7 days later, he found the perfect fit.
Brief Review from Adam:
JPNY: How was the overall service provided by Jobspring Partners?
Adam: Top notch. The whole thing was quick and easy, which is the opposite of my previous experiences with recruiters.
JPNY: How was our ability to deliver interviews?
Adam: Great. I had as many interviews as I could plausibly attend. All relevant, too. I could see myself working at most of them.

Jobspring San Francisco hosted a Candidate Appreciation Night last Thursday, June 21 for some of our recent candidates.
They came over to our office for some sweet games like Settlers of Catan, Apples to Apples, Wii, and Catch Phrase. We also provided Togo's sandwiches and beverages to thank our candidates for working with us!
It was a fun night, and really great to spend some time with the people we are representing to get to know them better. Check out the photos from Jobspring:

For the second Tech In Motion San Francisco event hosted by Jobspring Partners, we had a Technology Sticker theme which ended up being a really fun and easy way to start a conversation with other people who have similar interests.
The Meetup was at 111 Minna Gallery and it was a great night of networking, happy hour, free pizza, and discussion about technology in SOMA!
