NET/WORK,’s tech job fair event, is just a couple of days away. This year, all five of the markets are coming together for one free virtual event on March 18. This is an opportunity to expand your networking reach and connect with more than 40 companies, including IncNow, Tech Impact and Vanguard.

As always, it’s more than just a job fair.  And, while some in-person perks like free headshots are not part of the virtual version of the event, there are some new features — including the newsroom lounge, where reporters from all markets will be on hand to chat with attendees to pitch stories, offer feedback or just connect with us.

The noon to 2 p.m. portion of NET/WORK 2021 will focus on Delaware and Pennsylvania, and Delaware lead reporter Holly Quinn (that’s me) and Philly lead reporter Paige Gross will be available during the full two hours. You can drop in any time.

Have a story idea but don’t know how to go about pitching it? It’s pretty straightforward.

Here’s the general schedule for the day, broken down into PA/DE, remote and DMV:

  • Noon to 2 p.m. — Pennsylvania and Delaware companies (especially the Philly and Pittsburgh metro areas)
  • 2 to 4 p.m. — Remote focus
  • 4 to 6 p.m. — DMV companies (D.C. metro, Baltimore and the surrounding area, and Virginia)

Meet the regions most exciting tech companies. RSVP for NET/WORK hbspt.cta.load(2084427, ‘9fccf8d0-5499-46dd-bb82-389d92419c3a’, {});
