How My Geeky Interests Got Me A Job

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we grow up, it can be easy to think that your hobbies are a waste of time. That you should be using that time to learn to program or take business classes. But this panel is here to prove that your interests are NOT a waste of time. Sticking to your interests can help you and find work that fulfills you!
