Sampling of where June Candidates are Launching Business Careers

The June Career Conference has concluded but it has been a very busy and productive three weeks following the Career Conference with candidates conducting their follow-up interviews.  These are interviews taking place on site with companies at the location where they may be working.  As of this blog post, all of the follow-up interviews are now complete.  A couple of months ago, my colleague Joel posted a sample list of candidates and where they accepted positions and I wanted to continue by sharing the same from the June Career Conference to show the breadth and diversity of opportunities, locations, etc.
