Pints on Purpose: The “Why do you …?” Mixer

Tired of that ubiquitous first question at DC events: “What do you do?”
It has this impatient, transactional what-can-you-do-for-me nature. Well, we’ve banned it at Pints on Purpose, where we suggest an alternative: ‘Why do you do what you do?”. We give the floor to each attendee to tell us all what you’re working on and make a profession: that is, make a solemn, public commitment to your work, whether it’s a new idea or long-term, a special side project or your main venture. (sometimes it’s easier after a pint or two).

“Work is the curse of the drinking classes.” – Oscar Wilde

PoP-up Career Clinics:

We run these usually in the context of other, larger events, such as employment and education fairs. With from 1-5 (typically) skilled advisers, we review resumes, bios, help prepare elevator pitches and answer all manner of career doubts, issues, and questions. It allows event organizers to attract their target attendees with some outside professional development and transition questions and leave them appreciative of the experience. Want to bring a PoP-up career Clinic to your next event? Contact us.
