UPLINK Career Fair Draws Big Crowd in First Year
Yesterday afternoon, over 100 students from local colleges and universities flooded the offices of UpTech to take part in a first-of-its-kind career fair hosted by the Covington-based infomatics business accelerator.
The goal of the event, entitled UPLINK, was to connect talented local students with startups who are looking to hire part-time or full-time employees or interns. Startup companies from across the Greater Cincinnati area were in attendance and students were also given the opportunity to have a professional headshot taken by Covington photgrapher Rudy Harris for their LinkedIn profiles in addition to connecting with company founders and employees.
Since moving to West Pike Street in late 2013, UpTech has hosted several successful events in Covington, including UpStart which drew hundreds to downtown Covington last September.
