In addition to the connecting directly with company representatives, students also had the option of attending a brief Q+A session with industry leaders. A dynamic conversation shared helpful insight into how students can stand out from the crowd, transition successfully into the work world from college and continue to grow. The panel featured:

"The Get Hired event brings the real world job search right to you and can be very eye opening. For those who always hear how competitive the job market can be but never realize the full spectrum of candidates... it begins to put things into perspective." - Henry A.
