The Indy Pride Virtual Career Fair will take place 📆 Tuesday, October 6th, 2020  from 11am-2pm and will take place through 💻 private virtual meetings on Zoom. Indy Pride will connect the registered participants directly to the employers through an online scheduling platform. 

 

How will candidates be able to connect with potential employers?
