Tech Jam From Home – A Virtual Job Fair

May 7, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm





Tech Jam From Home

A virtual job fair and networking event

12:30 – 4 p.m. (EST)

thu, May 7, 2020

The last few weeks can be best described as a roller coaster as they’ve been filled with many ups and a heck of a lot of downs. We know that there are a lot of talented folks in the tech ecosystem across the country who’ve lost well-earned positions with incredible organizations – and we also know that there are a fair number of startup and scaling companies who’ve seen their workstreams explode or pivoted to answer the call to stop the spread of COVID-19.

To bring these two groups together, Communitech will be hosting Tech Jam From Home on May 7, 2020 from 12:30 – 4 p.m. (EST). This will be a virtual edition of the Tech Jam job fair and networking event that folks in Waterloo Region have come to know and love – with a few tweaks, of course. Thanks to our partners at the Canadian Digital Media NetworkProspect and Uvaro, Tech Jam From Home will have a number of companies in attendance with open positions across Canada.

Job seekers will get the chance to target their job search while remaining safe at home and wearing their favourite sweatpants. Here, they’ll get to learn about and connect with the tech-driven companies that have open roles that meet their needs all through the Eventmobi platform. Job seekers will be able to visit digital company booths and chat in real-time with company representatives on available positions, role requirements and work-from-home company cultures.

As this is our first foray at bringing this event to you virtually, we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate this virtual world together and work out the kinks. We hope you will join us for this ride.

It goes a little something like this…

12:30 – 2 p.m. | Session for Technical roles
2  – 3 p.m. | Session for Marketing/Design/Sales roles
3 – 4 p.m. | Session for Support roles

Thanks to our partners
