Tech Jam From Home

A virtual job fair and networking event

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 

12 - 5 p.m. ET

Due to popular demand, Tech Jam From Home is back again - and SO soon! As a result of overwhelming interest received with our last event, we have doubled the company capacity so more can participate and connect with wonderful talent from across the country.


The last few months can be best described as a roller coaster as they’ve been filled with many ups and a heck of a lot of downs. We know that there are a lot of talented folks in the tech ecosystem across Canada who’ve lost well-earned positions with incredible organizations - and we also know that there are a fair number of startup and scaling companies who’ve seen their workstreams explode or pivoted to answer the call to stop the spread of COVID-19.


To bring these two groups together, the Communitech Talent Connections Program will be hosting Tech Jam From Home on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 from 12 - 5 p.m. (ET). This will be a virtual edition of the Tech Jam job fair and networking event that folks in Waterloo Region have come to know and love - with a few tweaks, of course. Thanks to our partners at the Canadian Digital Media Network and Prospect, Tech Jam From Home will have a number of companies in attendance with open positions across Canada.


Job seekers will get the chance to target their job search as well as learn about and connect with tech-driven companies with open roles that meet their needs - all through the Eventmobi platform. Job seekers will be able to visit digital company booths to learn more about the organization, chat in real-time with company representatives using the chat function and join into video conferencing sessions to learn about available positions, role requirements and work-from-home company cultures.


As this is our second foray at bringing this event to you virtually, we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate this virtual world together and work out the kinks. We hope you will join us for this ride.

12 - 2 p.m. ET | Session for Technical roles
2  - 3:30 p.m. ET | Session for Marketing/Design/Sales roles
