Highlights & Feedback

We got some great coverage about this event via the Kansas City Star and several mentions on local TV news stations!

Here are just a few of the comments made about the event:

Thanks so much! I have to admit – that was the first IT only job fair I have been to in, well… ever! Job fairs can be so spotty; it was pleasant to talk to people who were looking for what I had to offer them.

Thanks for setting this up! I usually do not like job fairs because usually they just say “hello and go apply online.” I actually was able to talk more in depth with the hiring recruiters this time and actually got a call back from one of them pointing out a job that they think will match my qualifications. Hopefully it will lead somewhere, but even if it doesn’t, this event was worth attending.

I thought the IT career fair was great. It was terrific to be able to talk face to face with hiring companies. Thank you for coordinating it.

I had a GREAT time. I haven’t been to a Professional Experienced job fair since I was downsized.

I enjoyed the Job fair; I appreciate all the work you guys did to make that happen.

Extra special thanks
