What is the Winter Job Fair?

A 2-hour evening startup mixer focused on connecting Capital Factory companies to individuals seeking employment within the Austin tech and startup community. Come meet Capital Factory's budding startups, learn about what opportunities are available, drop off a resume, and grab some bubbly (holiday cheer included).

This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Who is this event for?

Job hunters, students seeking internships, and more - essentially, those interested in connecting with potential employers.

What is the format of this event?

This format will be an informal version of what one might see during the Austin Startup Crawl. Participants will follow a path that will give them the opportunity visit with each startup. Of course, participants are also welcome to head to specific startup tables, as the presumption is, they may target a few prior to their arrival.

Capital Factory companies who are interested may also conduct prescheduled or on-the-spot interviews in our Classroom. Additionally, guests may network in this space once they’ve completed their time in the main mixer area.

Schedule


7PM: Check-in, grab a drink, and get ready for things to begin.

7:30PM: Get to mixin' and minglin' with our startups!

9:00PM: Snag that last business card, drop of your resume, and say goodbye.
