Thank you to the 400+ candidates and 300+ employers who joined us for 6 educational sessions, 26 institutional spotlights, over 1600 interviews, and countless connections. We hope that the TPE Virtual experience has proven to be valuable and rewarding.
In addition to our attendees, appreciation must be extended to the heart of The Placement Exchange…our volunteers! Many thanks to our volunteers who served as candidate coaches, “The Well” facilitators, panelists, and presenters. It is because of folx like you that we can deliver engaging, innovative, and meaningful experiences for candidates and employers alike.
And last, but certainly not least, I must show some love for the 2022 TPE Planning Committee. Words cannot express the immense gratitude I have for this phenomenal group of individuals. I knew when this team came together that they would be a force to be reckoned with. The committee hit the ground running and did everything from a place of love. As chair, they challenged me to grow, kept me grounded, lifted my spirit, and brought many smiles to my face. So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to Tim, D’Najah, Spencer, Karess, Nick, Ashley, Connor, Leah, Dylan, and Sahmyah for your brilliance, ethic of care, creativity, and dedication!
