This stop is being hosted by The Garage in partnership with the Tech Square Job Fair. The night will consist of a career fair, speed mentoring sessions connecting mid-level/senior level talent with up & coming techies, lightning talks, a coding boot camp showcase, and of course, special guests like Megan Smith, the 3rd CTO of the United States.

Ways to join Tech Jobs Tour Atlanta
1. Coding Bootcamp Showcase
The format will be a lineup of 60-second pitches, very punchy (keeps the audience engaged) with Q+A following, off-stage. It's a less-is-more scenario that invites audience members to find you with questions.

2. Event Partner (Outreach)
Our events work because we always have the right people in the room. (Right people meaning those involved in the startup ecosystem and beyond, committed to diversity, supporting a diverse workforce development, providing tech training options to non-traditional talent, and interested in connecting across sectors because you know tech can't save the world alone). We would love to have you as an outreach partner to ensure your students, network, and alum are aware of the event.
3. Be a Mentor
The Tech Jobs Tour organizes speed mentoring that doesn't suck! It's a great way to build relationships quickly and connect with other people in tech. We'll have 3-4 sessions throughout the night and you can sign up to be in 1 or all 4. Each session is 30-45 minutes. We'll guide & prompt you and in each session, you'll get to provide wisdom to multiple mentees. You feel good, they feel good. Win-win. Oh, and did I mention we'll make you Tech Jobs Tour famous with a photo and bio on our site? (Because we will, if that's your thing.)
