Big Top: Reverse Job Fair + Networking Event
January 16 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
We are excited to welcome you to the first Big Top event of 2018!
Big Top’s mission is simple: connecting the Triangle’s world-class talent to the startups seeking the competitive advantage that comes with building the right team. Whether you are new to the area, actively looking for the next opportunity, or just curious about what’s out there, this is the event for you!
We believe, that when people are themselves, more effective matches happen! Our reverse job fair and networking events are carefully curated for the optimal match. From the 1 minute company culture pitches by each startup to the tasty appetizers presented by Indulge Catering paired with a Bull Durham Beer, your senses will be at ease knowing it is possible to work for an innovative company with good people!
*If you are a consultant looking to recruit or sell to companies you will be asked to leave. These companies are not looking for agencies to fulfill their needs, but individuals who can contribute to evolving their team. If you are unsure if you fall in this category, email us at [email protected].
WHAT TO EXPECT?
A few reasons why past attendees have loved the experience: High energy, startups pitching to you on why you should join their team, light appetizers, beer, wine, a room full of innovative minds, featured tips + company summaries we send pre-event, The Poetry Fox, and startup job opportunities (duh)!
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT?
More reasons why past attendees have loved the experience (hint, the following doesn’t exist): Business suits, piles of resumes, big booths with minimal interaction, and a bunch of grumpy people that are just getting paid to be there.
