October 2019
Are you looking for talent to grow your organization? Employers across the state are leveraging NC TECH’s Fall Job Fairs in the search for qualified candidates. Nearly 30+ employers are already signed up to participate in the Fall Job Fair on October 17 in the Triangle. Sign up today to meet/greet with over 400+ candidates already registered . Or sign up as an employer to get visibility as a tech employer on our website, social media and press. Contact  Michelle Calton  for questions.
Come one, come all (members + non-members) to enjoy a fall evening mixing and mingling with the tech community on the patio at Wye Hill. Join us first at 4:30 pm in the Tap Room for a brief overview of NC TECH to learn more about the state’s tech association and how you/your company can get involved. We will then transition to the patio to take in the fantastic view of downtown Raleigh with beverages and bites. 
While North Carolina leads the nation in the number of women in IT positions, there is still work to be done. And when looking at the startup scene, the quest for funding and support of women owned ventures can be challenging. Join us for a panel discussion with female leaders in the tech and entrepreneurial space where they will share their unique journeys, discuss how to shift the paradigm, and provide insights on how to advocate for change for now and the next generation of women.
On behalf of NC TECH, review partner Cherry Bekaert, and the awards selection committee – congratulations to the NC TECH Awards corporate finalists. 
 
Finalists will be honored and the winners announced live at the  NC Tech Awards Gala  on Thursday, November 21 at the Raleigh Convention Center. This annual event attracts 800+ business, tech and public leaders from across the state.
