We’ve heard plenty about the bitcoin recent job fair that took place in Silicon Valley — which saw over 300 attendees, and large bitcoin-related companies looking to hire some of the best and brightest in the community.
That job fair is now headed toward the East Coast of the United States.
The Bitcoin Center NYC has partnered with Coinality and the Plug and Play Tech Center to host a job fair in the heart of New York City’s financial district, just one hundred feet away from the New York Stock Exchange.
Taking place from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on the 28th of June (Saturday), prospective job seekers will have the opportunity to check out companies they could very well be working for and doing what they love.
“We’re grateful to Coinality and Plug and Play Tech Center for the opportunity to partner on a project that employers and jobseekers will find invaluable,” said Bitcoin Center NYC founder Nick Spanos. “The fintech marketplace is quickly evolving and Bitcoin is a key catalyst in that rapid transformation. A determinant of how viable the industry will be a month or a decade from now is available talent and this event will set in motion many new employer-jobseeker relationships.”
“Absent from the often-colorful storyline on Bitcoin is the technology’s job-creating potential and by definition this event will help alter that narrative,” he added.
Event organizers are currently working to gather exhibitors. As such, a list of these exhibitors is not yet available (although I’m informed by a Bitcoin Center NYC spokesperson that there are talks going on with BitPay and Kraken, though nothing is confirmed).
Admission to the event for job-seekers is free of charge.
We’ll have more information on this event just as soon as it becomes available.
