Triangle Tech Connect is a monthly review of local entrepreneurial Technology Sales and Marketing career opportunities.
April is a symbolic month for a variety of observances, causes, and traditions. In Catholic tradition, April is the Month of the Resurrection of the Lord. It is also the month of observance for the Qingming Festival, Rama Navami, Fast of Miriam, and Passover, to name a few. April is also National Volunteer Month, Autism Awareness Month, Jazz Appreciation Month, National Poetry Month, National Pecan Month, and National Grilled Cheese Month. So what do these things have to do with hiring? Absolutely nothing but it’s fun to know that we have so many reasons to celebrate. Now let’s take a look at the local Triangle companies that are hiring for sales and marketing in April.
