Why Talent Jam?

Talent Jam works because it authentically connects people in ways that traditional networking events or job fairs simply don't. Talent Jam has helped entrepreneurs find employees, co-founders, consultants, advisors, and even investors.  It's also helped a lot of talented people find meaningful work close to home.

Is Talent Jam For Me?

If your business or organization needs great local talent, you're someone who wants to share your professional talents in a fun and authentic way, or you just want to meet and hang out with great local people, Talent Jam is for you.
