One thing that was great about this symposium, was that it surrounded you with women who were driven for success and that touched you to do the same. . . . When I was sitting there and listening to their answers and their comments you felt inspired and Itruly believe I left with something there that night. One thing I was also happy about was it was a great place to network. That is another thing that they mentioned that was a key thing to move up and would be helpful if you need an internship or if you were just looking for more information. . . .This was a great experience and actually I had my first experience at networking. ~ Brittany
At the end of the night I received the business cards of the three women who were seated at my table. An invitation was also extended to me by Cindy Cooper to visit WJR Radio for a tour of their facility. Cynthia Robinette and Katherine Sharkey extended similar invitations. . . . .At the end of the night, I also spoke to Kathleen Ryan about her experience at Notre Dame which is one school that I have been considering. I thought it was a successful night and I gained many new contacts and benefitted from the experience. ~ Jaclyn
