Tech Jam Success Stories 

Published February 3, 2013 at 4:55 p.m.

It's hard to believe, but the Vermont Tech Jam turned six years old in January! We held the first Tech Jam on the Burlington Waterfront, in the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center, on January 28, 2008.

Since then, the Tech Jam has connected thousands of job seekers, career changers, students, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts. We've collected a few Tech Jam success stories here. We liked Charles Baldridge's story so much that we interviewed him on camera. 

A few years ago, Charles was living in Baltimore. Then he saw something online about the Tech Jam. He booked a flight and headed up the next day for the event. Now he works at MyWebGrocer. Take a couple minutes to watch this video and find out why.
