"With unemployment claims skyrocketing to $26 million, and over 100,000 in Utah alone, knowing that a ton of companies are still hiring, we wanted to create an experience of not just landing a job, but hearing from inspiring thought leaders to feel empowered during this uncertain time," says Robyn Cohen, Co-founder of the #Gethired Summit.
Speakers such as James Lawrence, best known as the Iron Cowboy, as well as Charlene Li, author of The Disruption Mindset, and Austin Belcak, founder of Cultivated Culture, among many more, will be speaking at the summit.
"Attendees will be able to engage directly with companies such as Target, Route and Discover to hear from their senior recruiters about the company, their culture and what roles they're hiring for," explains Lindsey Ivie, also a Co-founder. "We wanted the experience to feel very similar to an actual conference and job fair, even though it will be online."
With over 2500 people registered, 32 company breakout sessions, 8 keynote speakers and 2 panels, attendees will be able to learn from the best, prepare their resumes, understand best interview practices and feel empowered to find their next job.
"Best part is DJ Joune, the official DJ for the Utah Jazz, will be doing a virtual concert as part of our closing party on April 30th," says Luke Mocke, also a Co-founder of the summit.
The Younique Foundation is the benefiting organization for the event. With the rise of domestic abuse due to all the stay-at-home mandates, it was only right to raise awareness and money for one of the key organizations that's trying to help women with a history of abuse.
"We're so thrilled to have The Younique Foundation as the benefiting organization, along with Betsy Kanarowski giving a keynote speech centered on mental health," says Julia Deaver, Co-founder of the #Gethired Summit and Director of Partnerships for The Younique Foundation.
The #Gethired Summit will take place on Wednesday, April 29th and Thursday, April 30th. For more information and to register, go to https://www.gethiredsummit.com/
