Good Monday morning,
We took over Grand Central Station here in Manhattan a week ago Thursday to bring you “JobCentral” – a day of interviews with employers, tips and advice on the job search, a free membership gift for attendees, and, of course, our own “Ask Amanda”!
Thanks for coming out and making it a great day! For all 5½ million of you across the country who might not have made it to New York, you can get Amanda’s recap and free access to all of the materials here.
Amanda Augustine led the way on a day of great advice for people looking to get ahead.
Allison Hagendorf, fresh from dropping the ball with the Mayor in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, hosted the day for us. Here she’s giving away one of our prizes on the day.
We had real, actual interviews going on….
…with top employers like Hearst….
…and speakers from HP…..
…and more interviews….
…and even more interviews…
…and great advice…
…and more interviews!
Our whole team loved helping out.
Our head of Product, Selena Hadzibabic, introduces our new feature “Scout” — I’ll be telling you more about it next week!
The whole product team loved hearing your reactions, and surprise, and feedback, about Scout!

Speaker Pamela Johnston answers the question “Who are you anyway?”
Handing out info and demos.
“Behind the scenes” — Amanda talked pretty much non-stop for 6 hours. On her feet. In heels. Give the woman a hand.
For us, the chance to show you our new products and hear from you directly were the biggest upside of the day.
Before the crowds arrive, Amanda checks how her fantasy football teams are doing. Just kidding, she’s checking her notes and posting on her Twitter account @JobSearchAmanda.
Our CEO, Alex Douzet, says thank you for making it a great day.
We hope you got a lot of positive information and energy out of the day of taking over Grand Central, Readers, and we’ll keep bringing you more ways to be successful in your job hunt throughout the year!
I’m rooting for you,
Marc Cenedella, Founder
