NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 21, 2021 – The Greater Nashville Tech Council (NTC) is hosting a live Virtual Tech Job Fair on April 27th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to recruit nationwide talent for Nashville’s growing tech center. Members of the NTC are invited to participate as employers for a fee, and anyone currently seeking a job in the tech industry can register at no cost.
The NTC is partnering with One America Works, a non-profit dedicated to matching qualified tech workers from larger cities to smaller tech hubs like Nashville. About a third of the participating employers have opted to have One America Works leverage their nationwide network of tech job seekers to arrange pre-scheduled interviews in their Virtual Hiring Booths.
“As with our previous career fairs, this Virtual Tech Job Fair is designed to connect Nashville’s local tech job seekers and with employers in Middle Tennessee. However, this time we have made a concerted effort to include tech talent from other major U.S. cities who are looking to relocate to Nashville,” said Lauren Henslee, Director of Program Strategy for the NTC. “Our goal for future job fairs is to integrate these efforts into NTC’s new program, Tech Into Nashville, which is focused on bringing the country’s top tech talent to Nashville to fortify our already thriving tech workforce.”
Participating employers include AllianceBernstein, Amazon, Asurion, CereCore, Dollar General, Emids, the Greater Nashville Technology Council, InfoWorks, Nashville Software School, TechnologyAdvice, and Vaco. Each employer will have a customizable booth that allows candidates to learn more about the employer, view job opportunities, and speak with company recruiters using a chat function. Employers can then hold on-the-spot interviews via video conference, if they so choose.
At the previous Virtual Tech Job Fair in January, more than 280 candidates interviewed for almost 250 open positions, and a total of 572 resumes were submitted event-wide.
The fair’s partners, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, will be available during the event to provide job seekers with important information about Nashville’s business and tech landscape. The Nashville Software School, in addition to hiring for an open role, will also be on hand to talk to virtual attendees about their boot camps and classes that can help them further their careers in web development, data analytics, or data science.
