The Greater Nashville Tech Council (NTC) hosted a live Virtual Tech Job Fair on January 28th, drawing 288 participants from across Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
With almost 250 open positions to pursue, job seekers submitted a total of 572 resumes and had 378 on-the-spot interviews during the day-long event. Participating employers included AWS, CereCore, ClarisHealth, Concord Music, Diverse Computing, Dollar General, GraphiteRX, InfoWorks, The Mechanical Licensing Collective, Nashville Software School, Onlife Health, TechnologyAdvice, The State of Tennessee Department of Human Resources, Trinisys and Vaco.
“Our goal was to contribute to the recent trend that sees tech jobs growing here in Middle Tennessee, and the state as a whole, faster than anywhere else in the nation, according to the
2020 State of Middle Tennessee Tech Report we compiled in partnership with Middle Tennessee State University,” said Lauren Henslee, director of program strategy for the NTC. “I’d say this was another successful event, and we hope to host more in the future!”
The event was run through a virtual, interactive hiring booth interface. Each customizable booth allowed candidates to learn more about the employer, view job opportunities and speak with company recruiters using a chat function. Employers could then choose to hold on-the-spot interviews via video conference.
The fair was hosted in partnership with the Nashville Healthcare Council, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center.
