To all of you who worked countless hours working out every little detail and endeavoring to make JobCamp2 the best experience possible for job seekers in southeast Wisconsin - you did it! Every single person I have spoken to has raved about how valuable it was to their job search. JobCamp2 was an event that energized job seekers who have had an especially tough time this year. You found fabulous professionals that helped with resumes, mock interviews, presented new ideas, taught social media, took LinkedIn photos... and the wide variety of speakers inspired hope and new ways to approach job search in the almost 800 attendees. Thank you to every volunteer that generously gave their time to plan every minute, find sponsors, make phone calls, promote, staff the tables, speak, register, take in food, dispense info, schedule interviews, and especially to Todd, Angela and Dave -- congratulations on a FABULOUS EVENT for job seekers in southeast Wisconsin. ”
