THE REAL YOU
Your culture, education, life experiences, talents, family, friends and the place you call home — they’re all important to your career because they all make up who you are.
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.
I absolutely enjoyed everything about the conference. I greatly appreciate all of the networking opportunities that were given to us, and I hope to attend next year. Thank you very much for what you are all doing.
I loved listening to all the speakers and had a great mentor that answered all the questions I had as well as gave me some good advice.
