You may or may not know, but Jason Alba is kindof a big deal when it comes to professional networking for job-seekers and those in transition. He has a Job-Seeker’s organization tool and several books about the subject (including I’m on LinkedIn, Now What??? A Guide to Getting the Most Out of LinkedIn. Some groups have him speak, paying his exorbitant* speaking fees+ expenses for travel, lodging, etc., etc.
So, it stands to reason that if managing your career, branding yourself in your career, or generally being interested in leveraging technology to improve your odds of success in job-searching are important to you AND, you could learn about these things with ZERO DOWN and just an hour of your time** that you would want to attend just such an event where you can meet Jason and learn from him first-hand.

*I have no idea what his fees are, but it’s MORE than FREE.
