"Interesting ideas and perspectives from industry thought leaders, things job seekers can actually put into practice. Refreshing to hear they know the search is difficult!"
"I enjoyed the ability to hear from successful individuals with a wealth of knowledge. It is an especially hard time to be a college senior who is about to enter the job search. I also enjoyed connecting with other attendees!"
"As someone who has attended many career-oriented events in the past I was afraid this experience would be very repetitive, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the information shared."
WSJ provided those looking for information and insight on the current job market with actionable, credible guidance during these uncertain times.
