Our most recent Talent Day was well-worth the wait! After being delayed a week because of the recent snowstorm in Vancouver, we were thrilled to have over 400 hundred tech professionals come out to our event. Being that this was the first time BC Tech Jobs in partnership with the BC Tech Association has hosted a Tech Talent event, we were delighted by the response of the community.
We’re so happy so many of you could come out and take advantage of this opportunity with us. From what we heard, companies were thrilled about the quality and engagement of the applicants who were at the event. I hope you were able to make great business connections and meet new friends!
At the event, candidates were provided a chance to casually work their way around the room, meeting Vancouver-based companies such as Hootsuite, Hyperwallet, and Traction On Demand. Other companies that attended the event were Clio, Counterpath, Shift Health, Tasktop, Arista, MonkeyMedia Software. We heard from many of the companies that attended that they had a blast and were excited about the relationships they were able to build with prospective candidates. We are excited about hearing all of the great hires that will result from this event!
With both sessions being filled to capacity, this was a great way to kick off the year and begin our time as organizers of these events. We’re so happy that we’re able to provide an avenue for candidates and businesses alike, to meet face-to- face, discuss current opportunities, drop off a resume or business card, and leave a good impression to continue the conversation later!
