Are you a member of the queer community who’s looking for a new job opportunity in tech? Whether you’re new to the scene or looking for your next awesome gig, the Venture Out Career Fest is here to connect you with tech companies that care about diversity and inclusion.

You'll have the opportunity to meet with innovative tech companies while building your community and networking with other queer professionals in tech. Plus, join us for an educational workshop on how to elevate your job hunt in 2020 with Fiix Software's Senior Manager, Talent Acquisition, Dean Delpeache. Deets below!

As many of us know too well, diversity in Toronto tech is not a given. Many LGBTQIA2S+ people still face barriers to career opportunities. We’re here to connect the community to new opportunities in tech and each other.

The Venture Out Career Fest is our first event of 2020, leading up to the Venture Out Conference on March 19th and 20th.

Workshop with Fiix Software: How to talk to recruiters 101

You are at a career event. You approach a recruiter to discuss potential job opportunities, but you are at a loss for words and don’t know what to say to put your best self forward for potential opportunities. Does this sound familiar? How to talk to Recruiters 101 is an interactive workshop that aims to help active and passive job seekers effectively network with recruiters and hiring managers to find your next career opportunity.

Send us an email at events@ventureout.ca to claim your ticket.
