The marketing job track has exceeded my expectations and even my hopes for what I would learn during my first professionals conference. As a recent college graduate I have been fortunate to receive this opportunity from my JCC and was looking forward to learning and meeting new people. From the very first session that I attended, the interactive style with which each session has been presented has allowed me to learn not only through the JCCA professionals and guest speakers, but through my peers as well. My experience thus far has been invaluable and I am truly looking forward to returning to Akron to share new ideas with my JCC.
In addition to this being my first professionals conference, it has also been opportunity for other firsts. My co-workers and I came down a day early to visit Sea World. This was my first time there and it was not only fun, but a bonding experience for my co-workers and I. Another first for me came in the form of food. I have always been a picky eater. While I’m willing to try new and different things, I don’t often end up liking them! Here in Orlando I tried my first oyster. I didn’t like it, but hey, I tried it!
