Weekend Activities

Saturday and Sunday are unscheduled so that guests can explore the community and its many attractions.

With dozens of shops and restaurants, as well as a world-class performing arts venue, downtown Rutland is the perfect destination to shop, eat, and be entertained. Visit one of the town’s many unique shops as you make your way to the acclaimed Vermont Farmers Market in Depot Park. Grab a bite and maybe a local brew in one of many independently owned localvore restaurants before taking in a show at the brilliantly restored 1912 Paramount Theatre.

To take full advantage of the many resources available to you throughout the weekend, we encourage you to connect with the community and business leaders you meet at the reception event and make plans with them for additional conversation and introductions. Also, scheduling a visit with a local realtor on Saturday and Sunday when employers and incubator spaces are closed, might be a good use of weekend time.

Monday Morning Networking

Wrap up your weekend with a solid sense of the employment opportunities in the region. Monday morning is your chance to meet with employers in specific sectors and with business owners who can discuss what it’s like to work in the community. You can also sign up to meet with a local realtor who can show you potential housing options, or to visit a co- working or maker space.

Employer Industry Sectors

Monday at 9 a.m. at an employer from the following industry sectors offered on this weekend: Manufacturing/Engineering
Health Care

Please note if you choose to meet with an employer, the local Chamber will request a copy of your resume in order to facilitate the meeting.
