Beyond Altruism

I don’t know how you can (make this event better for future participants). This was my first one, and as I was leaving, I felt different than when I went in. I felt that there maybe was a chance after all. Thanks.

This was my second Expo, and the information that was sent has helped me prepare for a better career. I was able to net two interviews by attending the Expos.
Phoenix Expo Attendee
This was an awesome networking experience. The exhibitors were cordial; it seemed like they went out of their way to be helpful in providing you with information about their company. I also made a valuable connection with a participant that was not an exhibitor.
Phoenix Expo Attendee
Thank you for the opportunity to participate at the Phoenix job fair. I just wanted to let you know it helped me land a job. If it was not for this fair, I truly believe I would be still looking.
