Member Testimonials

"This presentation was excellent. I imagine that it was incredibly valuable for our employer partners, but even university members like myself should have been able to take something away from it. I really appreciated Dr. Shuck’s primary research, case studies, and emphasis on the statistical significance of his findings."

"This is such an important topic of today – to help baby boomers understand how and where Millennials come from. Being a Millennial myself, I seek to understand my peers and what their upbringings look like. I would only hope the generations before could learn how to do the same. Having seminars and presentations about this topic will allow for that. Plus, I wasn’t sure how Millennials were classified, but now I know!"

"This was extremely enjoyable and frankly, much stronger than I anticipated. I very much enjoyed it."

"The topics are always current and discuss newest trends. Topics relate to both HR and Career Services/Co-op."

"Enjoy the overnight aspect of the fall conference to really get an opportunity to know other KACE members."

"The opportunity to priceless. I enjoy learning about trends with students and how best to reach them."

"I have really liked the employer panels at the past two Spring Drive-Ins."

"The sharing of ideas and the face-to-face interaction provide professional encouragement and energy!"
