Ohio Inbound Marketing Day 2015 Testimonials

My time at the Ohio Inbound Marketing Day was so valuable to me as a graduating senior. It was incredible to network with stellar local professionals and also learn alongsideside them. The event was a good size, but not overwhelming, which really helped me be less intimidated. I would recommend the event to any college student serious about getting a job shortly after college.
