Thank you to everyone who came out for the first-ever SD Grad Party + Job Fair on May 30 at SILO in Makers Quarter™! Part business, part celebration, this event gathered local tech, startup and nonprofit companies to mingle with the graduating class of 2014 (+ other local job seekers) in a casual, outdoor setting. Highlights included:
