The Digital Combine: The Next Generation Employer and Talent Showcase

MITX sponsors a new kind of job fair. From the official event announcement:

“We all have former colleagues, friends, and family members who are currently searching for work. It’s not easy. Finding a job in today’s economic times is like competing for a spot in the NFL draft. You go through a series of drills, tests and interviews. The competition is fierce, the ability to stand out is imperative, and your performance is a driver of your success.

MITX would like to help.

This may not apply to you personally. But it could apply to people you know who are looking for jobs in the digital industry – both entry level and professional. If it does, please forward this email along to them.
