About Event


Our Virtual Dream Teams HireUP provides an opportunity for highly skilled, recently displaced job seekers find the next open door. The innovation sector in our region has spent decades putting together some of the most creative and successful teams of employees in the country. When these companies go through a downturn of force, engage in a new operating model, or are forced to close their doors, the Pittsburgh Technology Council steps in to offer support. Upon the news of layoffs becoming public, we quickly spin up efforts to help the displaced employees find their next role in Pittsburgh’s tech sector.For each event, we offer complimentary virtual booths for employers using an online event tool to connect with the highly skilled talent assembled by these organizations.
