Startups and students, pull out your smartphones and open your calendar app—NYC Tech Talent Draft is back for Spring 2013!

After a successful fall campaign—one that put over 30 NYC startups on display in front of over 450 students from the nation’s top computer science and engineering programs—we are excited to announce dates and locations for upcoming panel and networking events:

  • Cornell: January 30, 6:30-7:30pm
  • U Penn: February 21, 3:15-5:15pm
  • Princeton: February 22, 4:30-6:30pm

New for 2013, NYC Tech Talent Draft will partner with to facilitate recruiting. Seelio makes the static resume a thing of the past by showcasing students’ work and accomplishments on a dynamic online platform. Visit the NYC Tech Talent Draft Jobs Page to find opportunities at local start-ups.


Please note that Draft events will coincide with startup career fairs at Cornell, U Penn, and Princeton to maximize exposure. We encourage you to register and gain additional access to students during your visit.

Finally, for a comprehensive schedule of over 90 spring career fairs at top US and Canadian universities, download our handy Career Fair Guide, compiled to aid your recruiting planning.


We hope you won’t pass up this opportunity to meet successful entrepreneurs, learn from their stories, and maybe even line up a job. Did we mention free food and drinks?

We do encourage you to create a Seelio profile in advance of these events to increase your visibility and make your conversations with prospective employers as productive as possible.
