It was wall-to-wall people at the third Wall Street Pink Slip Party on Feb. 4 as throngs of unemployed bankers, traders and other former Wall Street workers mingled and met with recruiters at the Public House bar in Manhattan.
The recruiters were identified by their glow-in-the-dark green wristbands. Organizers estimated that for every recruiter, there were nine unemployed Wall Streeters.
The job seekers spanned the spectrum, from equity analysts to portfolio managers, financial-services technology experts and mid-level managers.

The suggested donation/cover charge was $20, with proceeds donated to the Ronald McDonald House of New York. And, there were drink specials: $4 cocktails with Bulldog Gin, Tito's Vodka, and Don Q Rum, and $2 Buds/Bud Lights.
It was tough to find those green bracelets (recruiters) but they were there!
