Des Moines March 6, 2012 by Brittany Mascio Only 17 days until Big Omaha. Get your tickets before they sell out!

Our Startup Job Crawl event is making its way through the Silicon Prairie, connecting students and recent graduates with young, innovative companies. Next up is a Startup Job Crawl in Des Moines on April 4.

Spring semester rolls along and if you're a student, you'll soon be on the post-Spring Break prowl for a summer internship search. Join Silicon Prairie News from 5-8 p.m. April 4 for the Startup Job Crawl to help you with this search and much more.

The Startup Job Crawl, will take its second set of steps in Des Moines to provide students the opportunity to visit the people behind local startups and experienced companies, see their products in action and learn about the culture of working in this startup community along "Silicon Sixth." 

More than 200 students and 40 companies joined us for our Feb. 15 Job Crawl in Omaha and we're looking to bring the momentum back to Des Moines this spring. 

Students and recent graduates

Whether you're on the job and internship hunt, looking to start the networking experience or simply up for discovering what it takes to work for a startup, this event will be the place for you. The Startup Job Crawl is a free event open to all majors and degrees.
