Always flush with fantastic job opportunities, the University of Denver really proved themselves with their recent event “Tech 303” that happened on a particularly warm April 14th. As a business student who is majoring in marketing, I tend to shy away from most job opportunities that seem more technologically advanced or mathematically inclined than I am capable of, however I figured that there was no harm in finding potential job placements and decided to attend the event. I’m very glad I did. The event drew 8 companies from the Denver area together to talk about who they were and what that could mean for students such as us. The following is a brief bio about each:

After the presentations, the event turned into a very useful networking opportunity, which I’m sure encouraged some potential career and internship conversations!
