    Is this a public notice or a free advertisement? Difficult to tell. Term seminar for a 2 hour event seems questionable. I get tons of emails from firms offering free retirement seminars etc…many with no cost–but a hook. My sense is this does not belong on the news site except as a paid for ad. $95 per person for 2 hrs isn’t cheap, This isn’t meant to disparage the company involved but this doesn’t belong as an article-

    I hope there is a possibility of expanding this program to cover design/tech performing arts disciplines. That interview/portfolio process has become almost as competitive, and our field needs workers!

    1. Thank you for your input! Good news is that we are currently working on establishing a tech track for our program and hope to have it implemented next year.
