ITAC Talent created the CareerMash initiative in 2007. CareerMash spreads the word about the endless possibilities of today’s tech careers. We want everyone to get excited about how cool technologies are bringing innovation to everything – environment, health care, entertainment, shopping, mobility, our social lives and more. CareerMash helps to demystify technology by helping students, teachers, guidance counsellors, parents – and anyone else who is interested – understand all the different ways the world is being changed by technology and the new career opportunities these changes are creating.
The CareerMash event is designed as a platform to provide exciting experiences and motivate high school students to pursue tech related careers. Run for the second year, attendance at this year’s CareerMash conference is expected to exceed 1000 Grade 9 and 10 students representing high schools across Toronto and the GTA.
