Looking to recruit the next generation of top technology talent for part and full-time positions or internships? 

The Pittsburgh Technology Council's Hire UP can help. Hire UP convenes top students from all Pittsburgh colleges and universities, for a top-tech job fair. 

Students studying information technology, engineering, traditional sciences, and more will be looking to learn about opportunities at your company.  Light refreshments will be available throughout the event for both recruiters and job-seekers.  

*We will be adding a virtual component so that you can connect with job seekers from outside of the region as well. 

This event will feature a special VIRTUAL student workshop titled “How to Present Yourself” and a profession photographer taking head shots. Students who attend the prep session will be able to get a head shot for FREE.  
 
If you are looking for a job or wanting to strengthen your professional brand, attend this workshop to learn about how to present yourself, interview techniques, resume tips, and overall best practices.  

Register for the job seeker prep session here.
