May 20, 2014 - Frank Draney, Human Resources Director, and Ken Relei, Recruiter, recently represented Union Wireless at a leadership event sponsored by the Uinta County Business Leadership Network at the Roundhouse in Evanston, WY. The MentorABILITY organization, directed by Wanda Rogers, reaches out to the youth of Uinta County to provide them meaningful leadership and career development experiences with potential Uinta County employers.

This year’s event included more than 20 interview stations lined up along the inside walls of the Roundhouse with multiple employers from Uinta County represented at each station. The students progressed to a new employer’s station every 6 minutes, where they answered interview questions and received feedback regarding their interview skills. The students did a great job and exhibited a unique blend of professionalism and honesty as they “sped” through their interviews.

At the close of the speed-interviewing event, representatives from each company provided constructive feedback to all of the students. The day concluded with pizza, drinks, and good conversation between the interviewers and students. It was a fun event for all involved and a great opportunity for Union Wireless to increase company awareness among local high school students, as we continue with our commitment to “Grow Our Own.”
