We’re ready to say goodbye to the snow and melt into spring with civic tech! Here are our top picks for events you don’t want to miss this week:

The Startup Job Fair LLC was founded in 2010, in New York City during the height of the recession. While college or professional career fairs attracted many large corporations, startups were either overlooked or did not have the resources to attend multiple career fairs every quarter. The Startup Job Fair has now become a nationwide event resource to connect the region’s hottest startups with top talented job seekers. The Boston Startup Job Fair aims to connect talented job seekers with the best Boston and Massachusetts area startups. This event will bring together undergraduates, graduate students, and seasoned professionals to one event exclusively for startups.
