Having trouble pitching yourself to others?

“FindSpark events just keep getting better and better. I recommend FindSpark to all my friends who are job searching, transitioning to a different career track, or simply looking for ways to meet intelligent young people. Even if you’re not looking, FindSpark events are a great way to keep those networking skills sharp!”

FindSpark brings together top talent with career professionals who ACTUALLY care about assisting young professionals in the workplace. After working with FindSpark, individuals feel motivated and ready to take on the scary world of the job market.”

Looking for an internship in New York while being in Florida could be seen as a daunting task with so much distance, but FindSpark has made it so easy. Connecting with companies and other interns alike has been made easily accessible to people, even when not in the same state, through their virtual workshops as well as Twitter chats.”

"FindSpark really goes out of their way to break down the fears of networking by being incredibly encouraging and welcoming, which sometimes is all you really need. They make sure to take care of their members from the moment you sign up for the event by connecting attendees with one another to the moment you exit the door by providing checklists and sending follow-ups emails. I know that when I attend FindSpark events, I will gain a lot of knowledge and business contacts and have a great time meeting amazing people."

"After buying my ticket and reading the email FindSpark sent out to help attendees prepare for the networking event, which included resume tips,marketing yourself, and insights from recruiters, I realized I wasn't being true to myself in the professional world. I thought to be a professional you had to put yourself in this stuffy box and dim down your personality. But after listening to videos of Emily speaking, I realized I was doing it all wrong! In the past, I thought showing too much personality would be my downfall but what I learned is that it's actually my biggest asset. I am so relieved and thankful for FindSpark for teaching providing me with insider tips, how to hold my own and how to be my best in the work place."
