Clones, Witches, and Gnomes, Oh My! Halloween Inside TechSmith

Guest post by TechSmith Events Committee member Rhonda Herron

Halloween came a few days early for TechSmith, as we hosted our annual Halloween party for the next generation of TechSmithies last Friday. With the help of several TechSmith employees, the Events Committee  turned our largest conference room into a ghostly dungeon of Halloween fun. Along with tables filled with spooky crafts projects, our young guests (Ok, us too) took advantage of a plethora of coloring pages, pumpkin bowling, and many other items to stuff in their Halloween gift bags.

Once we got done with the oooo’s, ahhhhh’s and eeeeeek’s over the wonderful array of costumes, the children were let loose amongst the natives to search for free candy. Well, not exactly. We may be pretty casual around here but we know when structure is needed! The little ones were led on a Trick or Treat parade around our Camtasia wing where several members of the TechSmith staff were waiting to admire their attire and lavish them with treats. Just in case the candy was not enough to ensure a solid 4 hour sugar buzz, there were also donuts and cider for all.

It was a Boorific party, and not just for the children. Many costumed TechSmithies could be seen with Jack-o-Lantern smiles. This was yet another example of a tradition that makes TechSmith great. As we grow and evolve, we of course try new things, but we also still gather for events that have been around almost as long as TechSmith itself. The result is perfect brew of old and new traditions, and a great place to work.

Want to come to the party as a TechSmith employee next year? We are always hiring motivated, creative, fun, and hardworking people! Check out our careers page for current openings!

Fun facts about Rhonda Herron, Project Manager at TechSmith: Rhonda secretly wishes to be cool enough to pull off purple (or pink, or blue… ) hair every day. But alas, she is not. For this and other reasons (*chocolate*) Halloween is one of her favorite days of the year.
