Details

Join us Tuesday 5/5 for drinks with the Uncubed (http://uncubed.com/) and Inside Startups (http://insidestartups.org) communities before many of us head to Uncubed NYC (http://nycuncubedspring15.splashthat.com/) on Friday 5/8.

You probably know what it feels like to walk into a huge event where you don't know anyone or what to expect. And if you're looking to transition from the corporate to startup world, maybe you have questions about how best to pitch yourself to hiring companies but you don't yet know the right people to ask.

Because all that can suck, we're hosting another "pre-game" event so you can meet new friends in the tech scene before attending Uncubed.

The 5/5 event will also include quick Q&A with startup leaders and individuals so you can learn from their insights and experiences recruiting and/or landing jobs at Uncubed.

Job-seekers, hiring managers and anyone in -- or interested in -- the startup scene should attend.

Space is limited. Please RSVP if you are definitely attending and adjust your status accordingly if your plans change.

Thanks and we'll see you 5/5!
