ANN ARBOR, MI — An annual technology and innovation event in Ann Arbor will include a virtual job fair.
Ann Arbor SPARK’s a2Tech360 program will run virtually from Sept. 18-26, and the annual A2 Tech Trek and Mobility Row, where the public can explore more than 50 technology companies in the region, begins Sept. 25. That day, attendees can join a virtual fair, the “job seeker trek,” by entering each company’s online room to speak with recruiters and human resources managers.
Applicants are required to submit a resume during registration to participate.

“While nothing can replace the first-hand experience of past Tech Treks, this year’s virtual program provides many unexpected benefits,” Paul Krutko, Ann Arbor SPARK president/CEO, said in a statement. “We are particularly excited to offer a specific job seeker trek, where attendees can meet with HR professionals and recruiters at companies looking to hire right now.”
Tech Trek 2020 also offers attendees the ability to easily curate their trek based on interests and industry, Krutko said. And for the first time, attendees can virtually visit the location of companies that are outside of the downtown corridor, he said.
Companies participating in the job seeker trek include Autaza Technology Inc., Barracuda Networks Inc., Criteo, DocNetwork, Domino’s, FordLabs, Human Element, KLA, Matterhorn By Court Innovations, ProQuest, RXA, Shopwindow, Thomson Reuters, TorranceLearning and Wacker Chemical Corporation.
Mobility Row will display connected and autonomous vehicles from self-driving shuttles to “emerging automotive technology,” according to a news release. Guests will learn how transportation technology will change through the future.
Nearly 4,000 people registered for the event in 2019, according to the release. For more information or to register, visit the website.
