ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (WCAX) Techies from all over the state flooded the Champlain Valley Expo Friday for the Tech Jam.

It's a two-day career and tech expo with exhibitors from all over Vermont. Many of the booths feature companies looking to fill tech jobs. J.P. Ishaq used the Tech Jam a few years ago to find a job with Logic Supply. Now he's here trying to recruit potential co-workers.

"We want to make sure that we retain a lot of the talented people that we have in the state that have maybe gone to our schools and are looking at opportunities -- a lot of them look elsewhere. So for us this is a great way to tighten that community and keep people in the state

The event continues Saturday at the Expo and it's free to attend.
