    Hello Leonard, I work with the organization that hosted the event and I would like you to help me understand what happened at the event.

    You mentioned “As we discussed the job fair, I was distracted by the poor coordination of the event, and did not focus on the purpose of the event”

    As you discussed the event with the reporter or someone else? What distracted you so much that it caused you to lose focus of why you were at the event? The purpose of the event was to give job seekers the opportunity to meet face to face with the individuals that are connected with the hiring process for the companies in attendance. Sales positions with Carmax, Lowes, Big 5, Goodwill, Sears, Panasonic and other companies were available at the event.

    Our goal was to help everyone in attendance.
