Kelly Bader, Business Development Manager at shares her thoughts on the upcoming event, “I’m really excited about the awesome list of companies we have on board so early on this year.  The Shmooz has come a long way since we first brought it to OR back in 2012, and employers are now coming to us to lock in their spots before we’ve even announced the date.  The initial lineup includes a strong mix of newcomers and veterans, and we’re only just beginning…..expect many more companies to be added in the coming weeks!”
