NCET is hosting a business expo to help upcoming entrepreneur’s jump start their business. Freelance writer, Annie Flanzraich, joined us in the studio Monday morning to share what the event is all about.
The Reno Mini Maker Faire is scheduled to take place on Saturday July 8, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Idlewild Park. The event is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. People of all ages and backgrounds will come together to show what they are making and share what they have learned along the way. The Faire is a celebration of what makes Northern Nevada unique.
The Pack Internship Grant Program (PIGP) provides funding for individual student internships with local businesses, non-profits and public agencies. Our program seeks to assist local organizations in developing substantive internship opportunities for Nevada students. In addition to providing grant funding for internships (we provide student wages at $12/hour for 120 hours), we will work with you to create a new internship program or renovate an existing internship to ensure a mutually beneficial professional experience.
By all accounts, the tech sector in Northern Nevada is booming. In part 1 of this series, we pointed out areas that are important to tech-savvy job seekers. These job and career factors are the initiating motivation for interviewing with your company. For out-of- town candidates, other critical factors also come into play. Immediately after deciding they are interested in your company, the candidate will start considering lifestyle, housing, cost of living, and family factors.
At NCET’s July Tech Cafe, you’ll not only hear from one expert — but two — on important business topics. Rod Jorgensen, Director of Counseling for the Nevada Small Business Development Center (Nevada SBDC), and Sandra Rentas, Hispanic Business Development Advisor, will co-present, meaning you’ll get twice the valuable information!
