Good Day All,

Happy to share my 4th in a biweekly Member Update!

Last week, our team focused on two amazing talent initiatives; Nikki led our successful Career Expo and Rich built our new Resume Distributor! Monica is also working on a wild new partnership we’ll unveil next week.

Thanks to Raul Moas (Knight Foundation) and Felice Gorordo (eMerge Americas), we also built a team around our Resume Distributor project to support laid off workers, especially from hard hit companies like Magic Leap and Royal Caribbean.

This week, we’ll be focused on building new resources, like our new Health Benefits offering below. And we’re looking for new ways to help out community, so reach out to me at joe@palmbeachtech.org with any ideas!

It’s time for us to come together as one South Florida Tech Community.

Here are our highlights of what we’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks to help accomplish that:

 

South Florida Tech Career Expo (Virtual)

We had an amazing virtual Career Expo, thanks to our partners at CareerSource, Palm Beaches Chamber, Boca Raton Innovation Campus & Premier Virtual! We had a great day working with our hiring companies and job seekers, with the following stats to share:

  • 4 Educational Webinars
  • 465 Unique Visitors
  • 922 Job Applications
  • 8826 Employer Views
