“Our previous career fairs have been very successful, and the Bloomington area’s tech sector saw significant growth in 2013,” said Katie Birge, director of the Bloomington Technology Partnership. “This is an opportunity for local tech employers to find the talent they need for their growing companies, and we welcome out-of-town job seekers to learn what the Bloomington area has to offer.”
