Tech Jam Success Stories 

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.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
