    Many thanks to Lia for organizing this great event. I’ve had very helpful information today. It was a great forum, and got to know different private sectors as well as dignitaries.

      Hello Matt, glad you went. By chance, do you have the TW contacts from the consulate? Is that who you meant by the dignitaries? Thanks.

    1 · August 1

  • Joe

    is there a list of vendors? carpool glendale area only

    July 28

    • Chaowei

      Any vendors/firms in the architecture design industry?

      August 1

    • LA

      Unfortunately, no. However, networking can be powerful. You may potentially meet someone from that industry or they may know of others who work in that industry and can put in a good word for you;)

      August 1

  • Peter

    Open positions in multiple fields where I work: www.csod.com/careers

    I can answer any questions at the job fair.

    2 · August 1

  • Ray

    Are we meeting as a group? Or is this more of an invitation type of thing?

    2 · July 31

    • Alan

      Lia, our leader, would better be able to answer your Q. If convenient, why not meet as a group @ 4:45 or 5:00 or 5:15 P.M. to sit down/grab something light to eat, share our experiences, and what we took away from the Job Fair. We are an open/giving group, surely something (tips) can be share among the members with the groups or individuals that choose to gather later. Play it by ears? Anyone open to this post-event idea? ? Don't know the venue, maybe at a local tea house or at the premise of the hotel. If we do so, we'll put the announcement right here.

      July 31

    • Ray

      The hardest part is finding a place that will seat the size of the group but I'm open to the idea

      August 1

  • Alan

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
