Careers Conference Video Transcript
Conference Attendee #1:
"It's a wonderful conference. It truly is the premier conference in the nation, I think, on careers.
Conference Attendee #2:
"I teach a course in life and career planning for MBA students, so I'm always looking for adult career development ideas."
Conference Attendee #3:
"Originally in my former job I was a Career Counselor and now in my new high school we're kind of continuing on with a lot of that career development as a comprehensive model for our K-12, so coming back here allows me to take a lot of that information back to my school district."
Conference Attendee #4:
"The morning keynote was excellent as well and he talked a lot about technology and its implication on the job market and how we need to increase education in technology, so it's extremely applicable and timely."
Conference Attendee #5:
"It keeps you up to date on the labor market, what's happening there…the trends, the training; training necessary for my students, for myself. To keep current in what the future's demanding."
Conference Attendee #6:
"I really feel like I get little bit from every single presentation I attend. I always find something, either an activity or an insight."
"We do a lot of national shows and this is by far probably our best conference in terms of the quality of the conversations. The people here generally seem interested in figuring out what's the best solution to help people find the right path for them. So, we have great conversations. We get great ideas for new products for us. We've developed a lot of relationships. People have turned into great friends."
Conference Attendee #1 again:
"It's a wonderful conference because you have such a mix of people here from all over the nation, and other countries as well. And it's just a great place to come and to learn. It's always fun to look forward to being here and take away some great things, and connections afterwards as well."
Conference Attendee #4 again:
"It's an awesome opportunity for content, skill building…I'm a very extroverted person so I get to hang with my peeps and build some relationships. It's just a fantastic conference."
Conference Attendee #7:
"It's an opportunity really to reflect, for me, and to refresh. I really find that for many career development professionals, we're working in isolation with passion for the population we're working with. We get tired and burned out, and this is like an annual homecoming. So, it's like having a class reunion, instead of every 10 years, it's every year. And so, the chance to see wonderful friends like Katia, but also to be inspired by keynotes, get new ideas, but for me it's really the opportunity to be around people who share passion, to make a difference in other people's lives through the work of career development."
Conference Attendee #5 again (Presenter):
"Yesterday I ran a roundtable. It was full; lots of good interaction. I felt like I needed more time but I was glad that I have a session follow-up, so people are going to come and hear more about the program."
Conference Exhibitor (again):
"This is a super easy conference in terms of the registration, showing up. The facilities are great. People here are awesome. We don't have any problems whatsoever. If we ever do have a question or an issue, there's always somebody here to resolve it."
Conference Attendee #7 again (Presenter):
"I was absolutely amazed that everybody was right on hand immediately to respond to whatever kinds of supports were needed. So, thank you all for just the physical availability of CEW staff. I didn't have to wait or search or make a call and wait for someone to come down from the hotel administration. It was great."
