The snow’s turned to rain, so that’s a good sign. Spring is @MSNewEngland’s busiest season for events! So we will break it down for you weekly. Here are three events not to miss this week:
The Science Club for Girls Media Team explores the field of science journalism. All participants are staff members of the Media Team blog, MadSciMag, and learn how to research and report on science topics through field trips and guest speakers. The team will learn how to write for the web, create infographics, and learn to record and edit photo, audio, and video.
The Boston Startup Job Fair aims to connect talented job seekers with exciting Boston-based startups. In 2013 we had over 75 startups across two events and 1000+ job seekers resulting in numerous hires. At our fall event, employers had over 250 open positions ranging from developers, graphic artists, web designers, to sales positions, mechanical engineers, accountants, marketers and more. Over the past few years the organization has helped job seekers find positions at top startups including HubSpot, Spotify, Clypd, Gazelle, Tumblr, ZocDoc, Acquia and many more!
New England GiveCamp (in it’s 5th year) brings together representatives from two dozen New England non-profit organizations and matches them with technical and designer volunteers for a weekend ‘hackathon’ to work on projects for the non-profit organizations. Projects and organizations are selected and vetted prior to the event, and project submissions should be open in late January 2014.
