Since the event, I’ve gotten: 3 phone calls. 2 were introductions that will lead to phone interviews. I cannot thank you enough!
Thanks for letting be a part of the first Elite Meet. It was a great experience. This is going to become something big. Keep up the awesome work you are doing!

Thanks a bunch. It was a great event, and I actually got connected to one of the head astronauts on the selection board through a contact I met at the event.
EM1 Post-Event Survey Comment
John and Jordan did an exceptional job setting the atmosphere for the veterans and the companies represented. Not only was the entire event results driven, it wasn't watered down at all. This was a TIER 1 operation from start to finish and I would gladly endorse any other venture these two embark upon.
