The Talent Jam Hickory Metro is scheduled for June 2nd, 2016 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm at The Crossing at Hollar Mill (883 Highland Ave SE, Hickory, NC 28603).
The Crossing at Hollar Mill is partnering with the Catawba County EDC and the WNC Kauffman Foundation Enterpreneur-in-Residence Program to try something a little unconventional:
Talent Jam is a business-focused mash-up of “speed dating, job fair and a networking event.” Both companies and local job seekers can present one-minute pitches of their professional needs or talents followed by casual networking, all while enjoying great local food and drink.
1) You’re seeing an awesome career opportunity
2) Your company is looking for a new, unique way to find talent
3) You simply enjoy good company and local food & drink
A one-minute talent pitch to the audience costs $20 – proceeds will be reinvested back into the growing Workforce Academies and skill development initiatives right here in Catawba County.
Registration is required and pitch opportunities are limited to the first 20 individuals and first 20 companies.
