NYC Homebrew Tech Job Fair

We are having our sixth installment of the Homebrew NYC Tech Job Fair. These are home brew small informal job fairs without all the fuss of a large convention hall. We limit the amount of companies to 25 to keep the job fair small and intimate. 

Engineers

----------------------------

The event is free for engineers looking for opportunities.

Please register on meetup and also the NYSE Job Fair site if you can: http://nycjobfair.org/register/

Hiring principals are encouraged to bring along engineers from the team to help spot qualified candidates so expect to be speaking with recruiters and engineers in most cases.  

Employers

----------------------------

Employer Passes are $300 and each come with a table, chairs, and the ability to post banners.  

Employer Passes are Purchased on the NYSE Job Fair Website:

http://nycjobfair.org/employers/ 

Banners, table cloths, and anything that can be given out is perfectly fine to bring to the fair as long as it doesn't damage the venue. WiFi will be available at the venue and plugs for monitors and computers. 

Feel free to email [masked] also for more information.
