The Leadership Group Co-Hosts First Bay Area-Wide Virtual Career Fair

San Jose, CA – August 21, 2020 – The Silicon Valley Leadership Group, Bay Area Council, Ohlone College and the Bay Area Community College Consortium are hosting Hire Together, the first region-wide virtual career fair, on August 25.

Some of Silicon Valley’s top employers will be featured including Cisco, Amazon Web Services, Bank of the West, Dignity Health, Webcor, and Wells Fargo.

The first hour will showcase ten employers who will speak about their culture, positions, and hiring practices. In the second hour, each employer will host their own zoom room where they will answer questions from the audience and provide further detail about open roles.
