Results of Preliminary Research

  • This first hour provided us the time to look at the three suggested conferences. Prices vary greatly along with offerings. Initially, we looked for pre-compiled averages, but none were available. At this point, the research pivoted to look at individual recruiting conferences to see what kind of information is publicly available.
