It’s critical that you maintain it at all times, and especially so for the conference. Make sure your information (including your resume) is 100% up to date. If you elect to have your profile shared with our hiring partners, they’ll review the materials, and set up an interview if see they the potential of a good match.

It’s About You

The interview opportunity is but one example of the myriad ways you can make the best of your Intersect experience. The key is proactivity. Yes, there are going to be resources and opportunities everywhere, but it’s what YOU bring to the conference that will determine the full measure of value you mine from the experience.

Together, we WILL advance your career. Intersect 2018 is an expression of our commitment to your career advancement. We will do everything in our power to make this event incredible for you. Your job is to bring the right mindset.
