Talent Jam - Work It Watauga

Date: November 10, 2022
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Location: Boonshine Brewing Company

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
