Well, I happen to know the person who was in charge of the job fair at
AAA and basically this person was not asked to do this nor did they
volunteer for it. It was given to them first as just a small project of
designing a page for the Audiology Today publication and then the rest was
thrown on them piece by piece.
In other words it was approached half heartedly :(
I suggest writing a letter to the people who are putting on AAA
Thank you for your support,
