The conference really inspired me, helped me connect with key people in the region and as a result I landed a job at a local tech firm.

COVID
LETTER

COVID

LETTER

Dear NEST Flight 2022 Attendees & Supporters,
 
The ongoing COVID-19 situation has been an unprecedented challenge for everyone, both personally and professionally. Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who have been infected with the virus or who have lost loved ones. 

We have been closely monitoring CDC guidelines and county-wide COVID19 cases, and in order to provide a safe and comfortable experience, we’ve decided to transition NEST Flight 2022 into an EXCITING virtual conference for a second year.

 

Our NEST Flight 2022 virtual experience will keep our tradition of providing college-age youth with a high-quality event where attendees will find inspiration and motivation from our keynote speakers, workshops and panels, walk away with tools to continue building their career journeys, and build their networks by connecting with other young professionals and company representatives through a fun networking experience. 

2020 and 2021 have come with many changes and difficult challenges, but I’m confident NEST Flight 2022 will provide a positive and rewarding experience for all of our young attendees! 

We look forward to seeing you online in May of 2022! 

 

Best, 

Jacob Martinez
