Get ready for a job fair because Thursday night, tech jobs are "under the big top."  Tech guru Chris Heivly, who co-founded Mapquest, talks about the fair and why it's so different.

Sponsored by Bio STL, this circus-themed 'reverse' job fair will feature 10 of St. Louis` most interesting tech companies as they take the stage to pitch their companies to job seekers - not the other way around.

It's happening Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30pm on Feb. 6 at the Lumen, 2201 Locust.  The fair is free.

·     Presenting companies:

o     Daugherty Business Solutions

o     Pixel Press

o     TDK Technologies

o     FoodEssentials

o     LockerDome

o     CrowdSource

o     Pushup Social

o     RoverTown

o     Monsanto

o     Coolfire

·     Each company will be given 3 minutes on stage to 'sell' themselves and their jobs to the job seekers in a fun and memorable way such as skits, video clips, singing, etc.

·     Every company will also have a table where job seekers can go to talk to company representatives and explore the job opportunities further.

    If you’re over 40, don’t bother to show up, because you couldn’t possibly be smart enough for these jobs. They’re only going to hire people who spent a few months at their last job learning the latest and greatest stuff.

    As someone ‘over 40′ I think all should remember one thing we have going for us is __ WE SHOW UP__
    And that is worth a LOT to most companies, skills can be taught, even to us old dogs’, showing up for work constantly unquestioningly is
    not something too many ‘younger folks’ have .
