Representatives from 14 companies will be hawking more than 200 jobs at a job fair from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, at the Boulder Chamber, 2440 Pearl St. in Boulder. The jobs range from entry-level jobs to senior-level positions.
Contract-engineering firm Cardinal Peak LLC in Lafayette is sponsoring the job fair, along with the chamber. Cardinal is looking for software engineers and other employees for "a number of exciting projects coming up," said Randy Bockrath, vice president of the company.
Boulder-based companies scheduled to be at the job fair include 6kites, Alteryx Inc. DevelopIntelligence LLC, Gnip Inc., Markit, Pivotal Labs, Quick Left Inc., ShipCompliant, Simple Energy, Applied Trust Engineering and Spectra Logic Corp.
The job fair will offer participants help with creating online resumes and interview advice.
Two speakers from the National Center for Women & IT will speak about the hidden barriers that can prevent companies from hiring top talent.
Greyzone mentoring based in Park Ridge, Illinois, will have mentors on hand to help job seekers polish their "elevator pitches" before meeting employers. An "elevator pitch" is a short summary named for the brief amount of time a person might get in an elevator to sell themselves or their ideas to someone else.
