Proof of success

"I attended the career fair, and I didn't know American Foods was going to be there. When I walked to their table, they were looking for a Bilingual Human Resources intern, and my father actually worked at American Foods for a few years. I applied a few days later. I immediately got an interview and was hired. I cannot thank [Career Planning] enough for the Career Fair."
