Why Go to Hear Speakers?
There are many exciting speakers out there. Often, they can be seen for free or at a nominal charge. In my time spent circulating in the job seeking community, I have been fortunate to see some exciting ones.
Living Proof of the Value

I did. This website wouldn’t be here if not for a presentation I attended. Living proof!
Great Networking Opportunity
Additionally, at most presentations, there is a chance to network. Speakers attract both the employed and unemployed. You might run into somebody from a company you are interested in, find you are both big fans of The Backstreet Boys and become best friends for life.
