Pink slip parties are so “last bubble” – Cause-marketing your job hunt is the thing du jour

December 12, 2008 at 3:04 pm 1 comment

Remember the dotcom crash pink slip parties, hanging out with a bunch of people who all lost their jobs, but were still so high on their bubble-careers, that celebrating their job loss with stiff martinis seemed like a good idea?

Well, given the recent developments, maybe we’ve all gotten a little more modest I guess, and maybe a bit more purposeful in how we intend to further our careers. Prime example is the cause marketing campaign by KyNam Dolan, himself a social media professional, proving that he understand his craft in the SM space, but also adding a human purpose to his endevours.

His idea: for every interview he gets through his campaign, he will volunteer time to non-profit causes in the SF area.

Check out the details.

Best of luck, KyNam!
