Uncubed isn't a job fair. Nobody likes job fairs.

 

Uncubed is the most exciting recruiting event in the country and this March we're gathering up Chicago's most promising companies and mashing them together with a smart group of attendees (students, grads & experienced talent alike).

 

 

Uncubed is a platform to showcase your company in a fun and interactive environment, with speakers, music, & games that draw experienced talent out of their cubes and graduates looking for more exciting/rewarding careers.

 


 

Here's what TechCrunch had to say: 

 

 Normally I wouldn’t write about another talent fair, but I want to encourage this informal approach to recruiting...Cheers to Uncubed for planning a recruiting event you might actually want to hang out at.

 

 

FEATURING

 

Great Companies & Speakers

 

 


A full day of exploring career opportunities, discovering new products and interacting with influential folks from the technology sector.

 

 

 

The Live Uncubed Art Show

But which piece will prove most appealing? Stick around to find out...

  

The Uncubed "2nd Wind"
