Job Fair

Job Fair

We're holding a job fair at YAPC. If you're an organization looking to hire developers, this is your best chance to find a whole bunch of great developers in one place. If you're looking for a job, this is the best place to pre-interview potential employers.

What Happens At The Job Fair?

At the YAPC job fair we (the conference organizers), work hard to funnel as many qualified Perl developers to the booths of desirable Perl employers as possible.

Employers will set up and run booths. These booths and the people running them will tell prospective candidates about the company, and what kinds of positions they have open now or will be hiring in the future.

Many employers will accept resumes and schedule interviews right on site. 

When Is The Job Fair?

The YAPC::NA 2012 Job Fair will run on Thursday June 14, 2012 from 11am until 3:30pm local time. 

Exhibitors will have the morning hours to set up their booths.

Where Is The Job Fair?

The job fair will be held in the AT&T Lounge at the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin Campus. The Pyle Center is located at 702 Langdon Street, Madison, WI 53706-1487.

Why Sponsor YAPC Job Fair?

Having a table at the YAPC Job Fair is a great way for you to meet highly qualified candidates for the positions you have open, and for you to make connections for positions you'll have open in the future.

Also, it's hard to beat the publicity we'll bring about your open positions between now and the conference. Once you sign up for the YAPC Job Fair, we'll promote your Perl-related postions on our blog, Facebook, RSS, and Twitter feeds. That means you'll be reaching the thousand plus Perl programmers that subscribe to our news feeds.

In addition, the YAPC::NA 2012 Job Fair will be highly publicized, and open, not only to YAPC::NA 2012 attendees, but all persons interested that want to come meet with you. That means we'll draw a crowd of all the Perl people in the Madison area interested in a new position.
