The Ann Arbor region is a growing, thriving tech ecosystem
and the companies located here are hiring in droves. Ann Arbor SPARK wants to
connect job seekers with some of the top companies in the region during Tech
Homecoming on November 27 from 4 – 7 p.m. This free, happy-hour style event
happens the night before Thanksgiving, hoping to attract job seekers returning
to Michigan for the holiday.
“Tech Homecoming is a great occasion for job seekers to meet
with several employers in a low-pressure setting,” says Phil Santer, Ann Arbor SPARK
senior vice president. “The participating companies have multiple openings and span
the region’s top industries, providing a lot of variety and depth for attendees.”
Cahoots, one of Ann Arbor’s newest co-working spaces is
hosting this year’s event. The participating companies are: Alfa Jango; Atomic
Object; DaySmart Software; Duo Security, now part of Cisco; InfoReady Corporation;
KLA; PassiveBolt; Pillar, part of Accenture Industry X.0; Saganworks;
Shoptelligence; Shopwindow; and SkySpecs.
KLA, a global organization that develops industry-leading
equipment and services that enable innovation throughout the electronics
industry, announced earlier this year that Ann Arbor would be the site of its
second North American headquarters. “We are thrilled to participate in our first
Tech Homecoming,” said John McLaughlin, KLA senior director and Ann Arbor site
leader. “KLA chose Ann Arbor for its ability to attract top talent while offering
our employees an exceptional quality of life.”
Ann Arbor SPARK is collecting resumes and sharing them with
participating companies ahead of the event. Details available with
registration. Visit AnnArborUSA.org/Tech-Homecoming
