NYC Startups on Seelio: 2013 NYC Tech Talent Draft

Seelio and NYCEDC Partner to Offer Students Opportunities With NYC Startups!

We’re excited to announce a partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) to give students on Seelio first access to opportunities with NYC startups on a newly launched NYC Jobs Page as part of the 2013 NYC Tech Talent Draft.

This event is the next in a serious of successful NYC Tech Talent Drafts. In spring and fall 2012,  NYCEDC conducted 11 information sessions and networking events at 7 top northeastern universities, connecting nearly 800 CS/engineering students to 48 executives from 44 NYC start-ups.

Check out what NYCEDC has to say about our partnership:

“NYCEDC’s NYC Tech Talent Draft program is thrilled to join forces with Seelio to help further our goals of attracting top technical talent to NYC’s booming startup ecosystem. We chose to promote NYC Tech Talent Draft jobs through Seelio because we feel their robust site showcases student work in a concrete way, while providing our participating startups with an easy to use hiring platform.”

–Dmytro Pokhylko, Director at the Center for Economic Transformation at NYCEDC

Be sure to update your Seelio because, starting today, we’ve launched a new NYC Jobs Page on Seelio. Check back regularly as NYC startups post their jobs! 

This page is where NYC startups participating in the 2013 NYC Tech Talent Draft can post positions, and students on Seelio will have first cut at submitting applications.

Throughout the 2013 NYC Tech Talent Draft, NYCEDC will be visiting college campuses and hosting events with founders, CEOs and key leaders from NYC startups to answer students’ questions about what it’s like to work in the startup world. See below for the current schedule. Don’t worry if there isn’t an event at your campus, you can still apply for jobs on Seelio’s NYC Jobs Page.

Stay tuned for new jobs to post and for updates in Seelio blog posts, newsletters and over at the NYCEDC Tech Talent Draft page for how to participate in these events!
