JM founder, Jonathan Patton, was recently invited to the Student Career Expo at the Mid America Center. It was the 3rd annual expo, and he spoke on entrepreneurialism and job opportunities in the Information Technology industry.
Here are some of Jonathan’s thoughts:
“It went very well actually. I’m exhausted though. It was four back to back presentations (with 5 minute breaks in between) and I’ve been up since 2:00am, since I wasn’t able to sleep due to being nervous (like I always do when speaking). I introduced myself to 400+ kids and then had about an attendance of 30-40 kids each session. I thought the presentations I did went well.”
“We [Megan Grau and I] made a few good contacts and were asked to give a video testimonial for them to put on their web site. Next year they plan to invite us back and they wanted to talk to Phil Stalnaker, our VP of Marketing & Sales, to give a speech about marketing and the power of search engines.”
It is a great opportunity for us to speak with young leaders and future entrepreneurs in this venue – we hope that our experiences can make a difference in the lives of all involved.
