Talent Jam - Work It Watauga

Date: October 24, 2019
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location: TBD

Talent Jam is coming to Watauga County!

An event that authentically connects our local talent and the organizations that need them in ways that traditional networking events or job fairs simply don't. This is a high-energy, hyperlocal event that features dueling, open-mic pitches where companies looking for talent, and people that have talent, each deliver alternating 60-second pitches. The event is followed by a casual but impactful networking reception.

Have Talent

(Job Seekers)

You're awesome and you've got 60 seconds to tell local businesses just what makes you a badass team member. Let that personality shine, friend!

Need Talent


You have 60 seconds to tell the best local talent why your organization rocks. Don't just tell them what jobs you have open, tell everyone why they want to work with you!

Talent Jam - Work It Watauga is presented by Silicon Hollar and is in partnership with Appalachian State University - Career Development Center, Boone Chamber of Commerce, Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce, The Watauga County Economic Development Commission and NC IDEA Foundation.
