The Bloody Search for a Job

Blood donors at Stanford Blood Center from September 1-13 will receive career counseling.

With the recession dipping into double digits, Stanford Blood Center is giving donors another reason to spare a pint: a job.

Through a “Giving Blood Works” promotion, donors who give blood at one of three locations in Palo Alto and Mountain View between September 1 and 13 will have the opportunity to attend a career counseling and networking event on September 13.

The career event will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the center’s location at 3373 Hillview Ave. in Palo Alto, and will feature career experts Lisa Stotlar and Ellen Schulman. Titled “Reduce your job-search time significantly, leveraging a high-touch networking approach in the high-tech valley,” the workshop will make participants privy to the latest networking techniques.

The networking event will include recruiters from 4Info.com, Option 1 Staffing, Tibco, Stanford Blood Center, who will discuss job opportunities and collect resumes. Stotlar and Schulman will furthermore offer free 30-minute resume critiques in their office a few days afterwards.

“Giving Blood Works will be a valuable experience at this particular time, because so many unemployed people have been out of work for years,” said blood center marketing manager, John Williams, in a press release.

For more information or to schedule an appointment online for the hour long process , please call (888) 723-7831 or visit bloodcenter.stanford.edu. Donors should be in good health, and free of cold or flu symptoms.
