Free Lunches do Exist - Monday, June 18th

by Jane Buescher | Sunday, June 10th, 2012

As the war for talent rages on in Silicon Valley, the hiring process has evolved into a courtship. RockIT Recruiting wants to start these relationships by buying you lunch!


Talent is what drives success in every startup, and competition for that talent is fierce. The hiring process has been likened to a courtship, and RockIT Recruiting is proposing lunch as a first date.


RockIT has just announced a new partnership with the networking startup, LetsLunch, to bring free lunches to engineers. With this partnership, job seekers are able to easily navigate to RockIT employees’ LetsLunch profiles straight from RockIT’s website. They can view and schedule available lunch slots, and specify preferred locations.


To kick off this initiative, RockIT is hosting food trucks at its headquarters at 880 Harrison Street in San Francisco on Monday, June 18, from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Going forward, engineers can use RockIT’s Careers Lunched page, powered by LetsLunch, to schedule free lunches with RockIT employees.


You don’t have to be looking for a job, you just need to be hungry!
