(KTVI) - Ladies and gentlemen, computer programmers and techies...direct your attention to this story.
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 Pushup Social
· 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.
