On June 7th, BC Jobs and our partners at the BC Tech Association hosted Talent Day at the Innovation Hub. Our Talent Day events continue to grow and this one was the largest one yet, bringing together over 300 technical professionals with 19 leading tech employers. This event showed off all of the opportunities available in BC’s booming tech industry and we can’t wait to see what’s to come in the field!

Some of our attendees shared that Talent Day was an “excellent experience to meet up new companies and make connections” and a “great place to find to and talk with employers” like Dynamic Leap, EDP Software, Exan Group, Tantalus Labs, Article, SUCCESS, Hyperwallet, and LoginRadius.

Local leaders in the tech industry joined in on the excitement, with PlentyOfFish, realtor.com, Hootsuite, Arista Networks, and CounterPath in attendance to meet with tech professionals and discuss life at their respective companies.

As one of our attending employers shared, “We spoke with so many promising technical candidates at this event! Well worth our time and investment.”
