Comments from past attendees  |  Read success stories! 

This was awesome!   Truly informative with information and strategies that will be beyond helpful! 

Loved this!  Glad I got up early on a Saturday morning for this!  Will recommend to my friends.   The presenters were extremely knowledgeable and well-spoken!  

Alumni were very  helpful in sharing their insightful comments and observations about their own experiences.  

The bootcamp went a long way to making me feel more prepared to enter the job market in May. 

I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk to successful people in my field. 

I wasn't sure I wanted to attend at first, but I am glad I did.  I had an excellent time and a wonderful experience.  

This was very helpful and having all of these sessions on one day was great. 

I learned so much and feel more prepared for what is ahead of me. 

Great program!  Worth my Saturday!!

This was very worth my while.   Not only did I begin networking with people in the real world, but I was able to connect with students that were really passionate about their futures.
