Give Back, Win Big at SHRM 2013 in Chicago

SHRM 2013While you might have just started making plans for the SHRM 2013 Conference and Exposition in Chicago, CareerBuilder has been busily preparing for this event like Anne Hathaway prepping for Oscar night. We’ve worked up a pretty impressive booth, complete with events, activities and giveaways to keep the paparazzi attendees engaged, informed and entertained.

Here’s just a peek at what CareerBuilder has in store at booth #2250:

Eat Up! Cooking demo with a celebrity chef

When: Sunday, June 16, 2013 from 5 to 6 p.m.
Where: CareerBuilder Booth #2250
Kick off SHRM 2013 in style with a special cooking demo from an award-winning chef and cookbook author and sample food from her world-famous restaurant. (Who’s the chef, you ask? It’s a secret! Guess you’ll have to stop by the booth to find out…) Enjoy complimentary beverages while you’re there.

Give Back! Every Photo You Take Goes Toward Empowering Employment

At CareerBuilder, we believe both businesses and individuals have the power to contribute to a stronger economy, close the skills gap and decrease the unemployment rate. Every effort you make to promote job creation helps make a larger impact on the overall economy. At SHRM 2013, we invite you to join our mission to empower employment, give back and win big.

Here’s what we propose…

Starting now – and until the end of SHRM 2013 – every photo you share on Instagram or Twitter using the #SHRM13 and #EmpoweringEmployment hashtags

CareerBuilder will donate $5 toward i.c.stars, a Chicago organization that provides business training for low-income adults. That’s right: simply by sharing photos, you’re donating money to help empower employment. Start now, and help us reach our goal of $10,000!

Oh, and did we mention you could win something for yourself in the process? Keep reading…

A Note About This Year’s Theme: The Chicago World’s Fair

Every year, CareerBuilder makes an effort to customize its booth to SHRM’s host city, and this year is no exception.

Come to CareerBuilder booth 2250 to see a re-imagining of the original Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, which introduced the world to countless innovations, including the Ferris Wheel, the telegraph, and several products we still use today – like Cracker Jacks, Wrigley’s Gum, and of course (everyone’s favorite two-dollar bar special) Pabst Blue Ribbon.

In hopes to recapture that same feeling of excitement and anticipation about “what the future holds”, CareerBuilder will also be presenting their newest product solutions – all of which have been generated from the most sophisticated recruitment technology available. While you’re there, you can also enjoy complimentary Chicago World’s Fair-themed food and beverages, including the above-mentioned Cracker Jacks, Juicy Fruit gum and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Don’t forget to stop by CareerBuilder booth 2250 June 16-18, 2013. See you at SHRM!
