|Format of the Event is wonderful. The best that you can think of. Your kids are the best kids! I’ve never met anyone like that at my interviews. I liked each one of them. If I were an HR Manager in one of the companies you invited and if the capacity of my company allowed it, I would take these young people (almost all of them), created a department just for them, and would rip everyone and everything to shreds.National Business
High level students were selected. The event itself was excellent!
The only request is for events like that to happen more often.
