Techfest is November 22. This is a Fort Wayne community outreach for high school students. It doesn’t cost anything for a company to have a booth at the career fair. This provides students the opportunity to see all the great companies in our area that hire people with STEM degrees.

It’s easy to go register online for a booth.

NIDIA is a sponsor for this great event. Raytheon, USSI, and BAE are some of the companies that currently participate. The Northeast Indiana region needs YOUR help if we are going to attract, train, and retain our top young talent to fill local jobs, especially in technology, IT, digital marketing, manufacturing, and healthcare!

We are hosting more than 600 high school students from more than 20 regional high schools to spend a full day with us, 8am to 3pm, experiencing:

  • Seven inter-school tech competitions to win the coveted “TechFest Cup” for their school (website design, forensics, network assembly Challenge, more)
  • A huge “Career & College Expo”, with 30+ employers, start-ups, universities, and colleges showing off their cool stuff and why Northeast Indiana ROCKS!

  • -A Compelling keynote speaker “Extreme Interview Makeovers” – A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have experts coach and guide students on how to fix their first impression and interview better.

We NEED YOU to fill our College & Career Expo – Join us in providing information to students of Northeast Indiana on where to get their education and to find STEM careers in their own backyard. There is no booth charge! The expo will run from 8:00 am till 1:00 pm on the day of the event. Each student receives points for every expo booth they visit so plan on being very busy.
