ENJOY LGBT+ NETWORKING WITH THE PEOPLE WHO INVENTED IT. On Wednesday, January 9, Out Professionals welcomes you to the year’s inaugural edition of OP.LOUNGE, the career networking series designed to help you leverage a booming economy.
Our hard-to-top scene? High Bar New York, the sprawling lounge atop DoubleTree by Hilton, in Midtown West. Its sleek ambiance and skyline views have made it an Out Professionals favorite. On the surrounding terrace, heat lamps provide welcome pools of warmth.
Out Professionals Members endorse the power of face-to-face networking. Consider the outcomes:
- 85% of jobs are filled through networking
- 72% of people say someone’s appearance and handshake impacts their impression
- 68% of entry-level professionals rate face-to-face networking higher than online networking
- 41% percent of those who network would like to network more often
Come equipped with business cards and expect to meet Members and friends of Out Professionals … OP.LYNX, our dynamic women’s network … and dozens of LGBT+ up-and-comers.
Purposeful networking and socializing from 6 to 9 p.m. Happy Hour savings until 7:30 p.m. Bottled beer: Imported, $6; domestic, $5. Wines, $8. Specialty cocktails, $9.
