Hey, is There Something Fishy About ‘Remote Work?’
Have you worked from home before? Here at ManoByte, some of us have when we've been sick or expecting an important package, but did you know big companies like Yahoo and IBM have been ending such flexibility? Sometimes on job sites it specifically states, "on-site" only when the position could easily be done remotely. What’s your experience with remote work or “working from home”? Share it at this free Meetup!
June 7th the Content Marketing Meetup will discuss the pros and cons and owner benefits of allowing remote working. This is a great networking event with lots of friendly faces -- don't forget to bring some business cards to pass out. Weather permitting this event will be outside, how nice, right? The plan is to meet at the Fish Ladder at 5:30 PM with SpeakEZ as a backup in case of rain.
2017 Spring GR Graduation & Pitch Night
Are you looking to network with local businesses and entrepreneurs? Spring GR invites you to attend their Graduation and Pitch Night consisting of entrepreneurs from 5 sites: Restorers Inc, The Other Way Ministries, Roosevelt Park Ministries, Streams of Hope and the new Spanish-speaking site from The Hispanic Center. If you like shows like Shark Tank, you will enjoy this event, which is going to run similar to this popular show. Entrepreneurs will pitch and share their business ideas to a group of judges who will determine a winner along with the audience. That's right; you get to vote in this interactive night. Why else should you go? They'll have refreshments, too. Get more info about this free event here.
While you're here, don't forget to subscribe to our blog, and we'll keep you updated on what's on the horizon for events throughout West Michigan and right here from the crew at ManoByte.
