Talent Jam is the perfect combo of a job fair, connection event, and speed matchmaking.

Talent Jam is the perfect combo of a job fair, connection event, and speed matchmaking.  It's a modern take on the classic job fair, where both companies and local job seekers can present one-minute pitches of their professional needs or talents followed by casual networking, all while enjoying great local food and drink.

Join us for our next Talent Jam, hosted by the Catawba County Chamber of Commerce and the Catawba County Economic Development Corporation, on March 8th, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at Warehouse 18 (18 2nd St NE, Hickory, NC 28602).

Do I have to "pitch" to attend?
Absolutely not!  Attendance is FREE -- we hope you will make plans to stop in for a bit, make casual connections and collect a few resumes from local candidates.  Please still register at the link provided.

If I want to play a leading role, how do I reserve a pitch slot?
This is a great opportunity to represent your company and connect with lots of interesting folks.  Sign up and pitch your talent or your company's talent needs for $20 (limited to first 20 spots).

Our organization has received many highly talented candidate resumes, but they simply aren't a fit for us - could I tell them about Talent Jam: Hickory Metro?
Please do!  If they aren't a perfect fit for you, but you think they would serve another local employer, please tell them about Talent Jam!  Spread the word about this event to friends, soon-to-grad high school or college students, veterans, the underemployed, or someone looking for their next step up.

What type of jobs have been featured through Talent Jam?
Account Managers, Engineers, Inside and Outside Sales Representatives, Administrative Assistants, LPNs/RNs/CNAs, Team Leaders, Trainers, District & Regional Managers... & More!
