Mission and Overview

WIT’s Job Fairs pairs employers in the Washington, D.C. area with qualified job applicants, including technology professionals of all levels and skilled business candidates interested in the tech sector. At the same time, funds raised by the Job Fairs provide support across all of WIT’s other programs.


Admission is free for job seekers. All employers are invited to purchase exhibit space, but WIT sponsors receive a free table at one of the events and a discounted rate for exhibiting at both events.

Join the Job Fair Committee:
We need a small core group of volunteers willing to commit to a variety of tasks for the full planning and execution phases of one or both events (Fall: July-September, Spring: January-March). Activities include:

  • Posting the events on various online job boards
  • Outreach to communities of job seekers and employers
  • Selling exhibit tables to non-sponsor companies
  • Designing/developing marketing materials
  • Coordinating messages and promotion (newsletter, social media) with the Communications Committee

Meeting Time and Location - We meet once a week (via conference call) for the three months preceding each event.

Volunteer the day of the Job Fair:
Just want to help out on the day of the events? We welcome volunteers who can direct exhibitors to their tables during setup and who can help steer job seekers to appropriate employers throughout the event.
