Talent Jam - Work It Watauga Set For April 4th At Ransom Pub

Posted By: David Jackson Chamber News , Member News & Promotions ,

Talent Jam is coming to Watauga County Thursday (April 4) from 5-7pm at Ransom Pub!

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.

View these two sample pitches: Have Talent | Need Talent

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

Registration is required and pitch opportunities are very limited. Registration for pitches closes Wednesday, April 3rd. A one-minute pitch to the audience costs $10. Registration is required and pitch opportunities are very limited. You can register for the event by clicking this link
