Alternative Job Fair Born Out of Rejection Kerfuffle Partners With Stack Overflow

program for food Alternative Job Fair Born Out of Rejection Kerfuffle Partners With Stack OverflowThe Silicon Alley Talent Fair was created after April’s NYC Startup Job Fair spurned more than 60 companies that had applied to recruit and indiscreetly cc’ed them all on the same email. The alternative job fair is set for June 16 and organizers just landed a partnership with local start-up Stack Overflow, which will give each registered company a free job listing for a month and promote the event with an ad on the site. “This is a great opportunity to land a free job posting on one the best sites for hackers,” organizer Ron Zeligzon wrote to the group’s email list. “Hope to see all us 80 rejects.”
