It was nice to be able to meet with people from different companies and have a chat with them. I liked how we were able to talk one-on-one without feeling rushed or having a lot of people around. It was private and enjoyable.

It was a great opportunity to meet newcomers with specific skills to our line of work.

This event gave us the opportunity to have face-to-face meetings; which is something COVID has prevented for over a year.

Well organized and the applicants were well suited. It provided much more concise conversations because of that.
