KC IT Job Fair Follow up & contest winner announcement

Our event on Tuesday was a fantastic success! We hope that our event helped talented IT professionals in KC to land jobs with great companies.

In this post, we’ll review some of the highlights & feedback, announce contest winners & give thanks!


Coverage:Kansas City Business Journal, KC Star Website, a couple radio interviews, and a retweet of our event by Kris Ketz!!


We received a lot of tremendous feedback in person @ the event, via Twitter, and posted on our discussion area:

Here are a few of the comments:

“It far exceeded my expectations. Made several good connections between potential employers, IT recruiters, and other job seekers.”

Thank you for organizing a job fair with participating companies that actually have a few job openings (even if some of those companies are filling positions of recently laid off workers). As job seekers, if we research the company websites before attending a job fair, we can be optimistic that the trip is not a waste of our time. I am hoping that my new contacts yield a job opportunity.

Thank you for coordinating todays job fair. The event was very well organized, and the companies present engaging. Nice job!

That was really a wonderful opportunity for IT job seekers to get in contact with many potential companies in KC area. Great Job!!!

Here we go!
