“YM provided a dozen banners and drafted several emails targeting employers and jobseekers registered on the AWIS Career Center. They did all this so we can focus on promoting the career fair to our members as well as lapsed members and contacts in our database, and new prospects via social media. We were very pleased with the results. This is the impact we were hoping to have.”
