Manhattan Beach, Calif. (June 5, 2012): Malakye (www.Malakye.com), the leading careers website for professionals and companies in the action sports, bike, outdoor, powersports, and lifestyle-driven industries, is hosting its next job fair and networking event in Portland on June 28. Known industry-wide by the ShmoozaPalooza moniker, Malakye’s job fairs and networking events bring together some of the most coveted brands in the action sports and outdoor lifestyle driven industries to meet professionals with both the skill sets and mentalities that would make them excellent candidates for these unique organizations.
Well-known companies looking to recruit at the Portland ShmoozaPalooza will include: Adidas, Lululemon, R.E.I., Specialized Bikes, Trek Bikes, Redington / Sage, White Sierra and Klim Technical Apparel, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. These companies will be recruiting talented individuals for a wide range of positions, including design, merchandising, development, marketing, sales, operations, and more.
“Malakye serves a very desirable set of companies in passion-driven industries. Competition for open job opportunities is high, and creating in-person time can make all the difference in the world. ShmoozaPalooza events are great facilitators for individuals looking to connect with these brands to make their mark in an amicable, face-to-face environment” commented Chad Mihalick, president of Malakye.
This is the first time that Malakye has hosted a ShmoozaPalooza event in the Portland area. Over the past five years, Malakye has produced similar, well-attended events in Southern California, Salt Lake City, and Denver.
“The human resources teams at the companies we work with are incredibly busy, but they still make time for these events because they give them the opportunity to quickly meet a wide range of people instead of just sifting through resumes and portfolios. Every time we’ve hosted a Shmooz, I’m told the ‘in-person’ time makes a key difference in either hiring someone or vetting candidates for another round of interviews. Time and again we have great people register to attend these events, leading to a wealth of motivated, like-minded candidates for these companies to choose from,” continued Mihalick.
The Portland ShmoozaPalooza will take place on Thursday, June 28th from 11am–8pm at the Leftbank Annex located at 240 North Broadway #115 Portland, Oregon 97227. From 11am–4pm there will be a traditional career fair format, with a professional networking cocktail hour scheduled to occur from 4pm–8pm.
The event is free for individual attendees and companies interested in having a formal presence can contact Malakye.com for more details at: Shmooz@malakye.com.
