Waterloo Tech Companies tapping Ottawa Talent Pool to fill Jobs

On April 21st Communitech is heading to the nation’s capital to look for talent with its ‘Get a Life in Waterloo Region’ recruitment effort on behalf of 700 tech companies from Waterloo.

“Waterloo Region continues to be a hot-spot for tech and despite economic challenges in other sectors, there are still many opportunities for skilled tech talent,” said Iain Klugman, CEO of Communitech. “The range of opportunity covers most technology areas from software and hardware to wireless and digital media.”

Klugman believes that Ottawa is a prime recruiting area because of the established reputation of the Ottawa tech community and the concentration of talented scientists, engineers and computer science professionals.

Companies participating in the recruiting event include big names like Research In Motion and Christie Digital Systems Canada Inc., as well as exciting up-and-comers such as social media analytics company PostRank. It will also feature some leading medical imaging firms including Agfa HealthCare, which is breaking new ground for its new building and has announced plans to increase its Ontario workforce by 140 new employees.

Communitech and a sampling of the Region’s hottest technology companies will be at the Brookstreet Hotel at 525 Legget Drive on Wednesday, April 21st from 5:00pm – 7:30 p.m. to meet with tech professionals one-on-one. Visit www.waterlootechjobs.com for further information or to register.
