THE HAPPY HOUR SCHEDULE:
** 5:30 PM - 5:45 PM | Sign in and Network **
** 5:45 PM - 6:15 PM | Guided Cocktail Making Class **
We kick off our happy hour with a guided cocktail making class by our Seattle based brand ambassador, Stephanie Olsen.
Each month, you'll have the option of purchasing a cocktail kit - including alcohol, mixers, and a bunch of brand swag - ahead of the event. When the happy hour starts, Stephanie will guide us through constructing your custom drink (in an informative session), that you'll take with you to your selected breakout room.
** 6:15 PM - 7:15 PM | Breakout Sessions **
Room #1 - Casual Networking: The Casual Networking Room is EXACTLY what you think it is! It's the most casual, laid back version of networking that can be had in a virtual world. This month, we're hosting a virtual game and will be keeping it light, fun, and competitive. Get ready to have a fun time!
Room #2 - Career Connect: Think of the Career Connect Room like a virtual jobs fair, where you get to have a casual conversation with your peers, a career coach and a hiring manager or recruiter from a company looking to fill roles while picking up tips and tricks to stand out when applying for a position. You can do this, all while having a drink, and nobody will judge!
Room #3 - Current Events: The topic for this month's Current Events Room is Youth Homelessness.
Each month, the Current Events room will leverage a digital resource as a tool to help carry the conversation. Stay tuned for more!
** 7:15PM - Whenever | Casual Networking & Wrap Up **
Everyone will all reconvene in the “main” room for some more digital games and networking!
We will all reconvene in the “main” room for some more digitally awesome networking! Feel free to check out whenever you like but don't forget to drop a link in chat to your LinkedIn profile before you leave.
ABOUT THE HAPPY HOUR PARTNERS
Kahlua: Originating in Mexico, Kahlúa has become the number one selling coffee liqueur in the world. Kahlúa Original is the hero ingredient in many cult cocktails and drinks. It will turn the average evening into a fun and different social highlight Its deep brown color is attractive and deep. Kahlúa Original offers enticing scents of bittersweet coffee bean and roasted chest-nut and multilayered flavors of black coffee and sweet butter.
Absolut Citron Vodka: Absolut is bold, original, creative. Absolut Vodka launched in New York, 1979. Our transparent and label-less bottle, inspired by an 18th Century medicine bottle, stood out from its tall, flashy, competitors. This was 1970s New York, after all. You had to be different to get noticed. Absolut Citron, our featured flavor this month, was launched in 1988. This smooth lemon flavored vodka quickly became our best selling flavored vodka. Actually, it still is. And did you know the 3 people who can legitimately claim to be creators of the Cosmo all use Absolute Citron?
ABOUT LAST TUESDAY
Launched back in 2011, Last Tuesday is a casual networking happy hour event (no name tags, no sales pitches, no judgment) that falls on the last Tuesday of every month.
Pre-Covid, the YPOSeattle events team would pick various venues throughout the city to host 200 or so of Seattle’s best, in an effort to better connect the most ambitious and motivated individuals in the community. Think of this as an intro to networking, or a laid back way for the power networker, the job seeker, recruiter or business owner to meet and interact with hundreds of other young professionals.
Well, the world is different now. Your health and safety are our priority so virtual is our new reality. So we changed things around to accommodate for the new landscape while maintaining our signature YPOSeattle happy hour style
