San Jose's local hot spot, South First Billiards, is paying it forward to the community to help revitalize not only the SOFA district in the Downtown San Jose area, but wants to reach out to job seekers and hiring companies in hopes that Silicon Valley can get through these challenging economic times. Partnering with PinkSlipMixers.com, a grass-roots organization of unemployed professionals that provides unique “pink slip party” networking events, South First Billiards will be hosting monthly interactive job search events every second Monday of the month.

While known as one of the largest interactive nightlife and creative art displays in the San Jose Downtown area, South First Billiards wants to pay it forward and give back to the community that has supported them for almost 20 years. Ben Soriano of South First Billiards says, “We were introduced to the PinkSlipMixers job networking concept by one of our patrons last month. As soon as we heard that they are a grass-roots organization of professionals that are being proactive to find a job, we knew we needed to offer space to help them get through these challenging economic times and find work for one another. Our venue supports the art community and we now need to support the general community at large. If we can provide access for job seekers and hiring companies to communicate with each other face-to-face, maybe they will find their next job or at the very least interact with others during their job search. We feel it is the right thing to do to revitalize our local job market.”

The PinkSlipMixers.com event is more than the typical pink slip party, a popular and growing trend around the country. Job seekers at PinkSlipMixer events utilize online social media to “Twitter” career criteria along with their Linkedin.com resume in hopes of maximizing their job search exposure. Edwin Duterte, the creator of PinkSlipMixers.com, explains, “South First Billiards is a great venue for our job seekers. They have two ten foot video screens that we will project Twitter-feeds. Our guests will be posting what other guests are looking for professionally and what recruiters attending want in an employee. For instance, a job seeker talking to a hiring manager might post using her cell phone 'Recruiter Jon wearing the striped shirt is looking for a product manager'. Guests in the mixer will see that on the video screens and hopefully other job seekers looking for that position will find Jon to discuss that position.”

In addition to merging the online and offline communities, PinkSlipMixers will be making the job search mixer experience more interactive and specialized than any other typical pink slip party. Edwin Duterte explains, “We not only want to have our professionals interact with one another, but we want to make it personal to them. We will have at least a dozen different industry tables where our guests can congregate and mingle with professionals specific to their job focus. Also, we will have a 'speed career circuit' whereby we will have experts in various job search stations, such as resume critique, interview skills, and etc., to offer free job search tips to our PinkSlipMixers.com members. This is not a job fair but a volunteer supported community that every member wants to pitch in to help each other find work.”

The next PinkSlipMixers.com event will be June 8, 2009 starting at 6 pm and will be held every second Monday of every month. South First Billiards is located at 420 S. First Street, San Jose.

Details of the South First Billiards:
South First Billiards has been rated as "San Jose's Best Upscale Place to Play Pool" 10 years running and Best Hamburgers in Town. CitySearch.com calls the venue the best and the only billiards club in Silicon Valley that features full far, 12 beers on tap, 29 Olhausen tables, air hockey, arcades, fooseball and pingpong table.
