The Vermont Tech Jam, Seven Days’ career and tech expo, returned to Hula Lakeside in Burlington on Saturday, October 22. More than 40 employers came to the tech campus with open jobs to fill.
They met with nearly 1,000 Jammers who wandered through the former factory to talk tech: job seekers, college students, entrepreneurs, FIRST robotics coaches, tech professionals, candidates and elected officials including Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger. Crowds congregated outdoors, too, in front of Beta Technologies’ MobileDome flight simulator.
The Tech Jam concluded with a keynote presentation featuring inventor, philanthropist and Boston Scientific cofounder John Abele and CoreMap CEO Sarah Kalil.
Thank you to our hosts at Hula, to all of our community partners and to the exhibitors for a day of fascinating conversations and new local connections.
