It was well planned with great topics and presneters for the affordable price for a day's event. Wish for more of it to happen!
I'm glad to stay until the end since both keynote speakers offered great insights of future labor market demand as well as how businesses select the talents with researches, theories and tools for supporting the ture ideas.
The only critique I have is to have a better time keeping when there are multiple presenters at the workshop. The workshop with three presneters, it left only 5-10 minutes for the last one to present which didn't serve the purpose quite well.
I would still give 5 star even with that glitch I mentioned since all presenters tried very hard to deliver all they could and have done great jobs.

The comments are in such light print on the screen (it looks grey on my screen) that it's almost impossible to read and very harsh on the eyes. Does it also look very light on your screen? Meetup keeps making changes and it usually has a detrimental effect on something that was working fine before the change.

Many Meetups in the Silicon Valley offer free access to conference keynotes and expo pass. I'm attending the Cloud Expo this week compliments of the SV Cloud Camp Meetup.
Luther Jackson (Nova) spoke for free at CAM on Saturday. He told us that the study is already outdated and asked job seekers to post on their website to help Nova keep current. Although this summit is for workforce development professionals, questions from job seekers in the audience could enrich the sessions.

Thanks for clarifying that, Daniel. I thought that since the group's membership description is "job seekers and hiring pros," the Summit was for job seekers as well as hiring pros. My mistake. I appreciate the clarification.

Hi Susan, this is more geared toward workforce development professionals, such as the individuals who help you from the Connect! Job Seeker Center. They will most likely be in attendance. These speakers however, the majority are not offered in Connect!'s programming. In year's prior, the planning committee had considered providing no-cost tickets to job seekers referred by participating agencies who helped plan the event. It may still be an option for future events.

Wow--$45 for tickets?! I'm glad Chinse Taylor asked about that. I'm under-employed, so $45 is way out of my range. The Connect Job Seeker Center in Sunnyvale (420 Pastoria Ave.) has all this information for FREE.
