GES Celebrated Bring Your Child to Work Day

GES celebrated Bring Your Child to Work Day on April 26.  “Approximately 70 children of our employees spent the day learning about the live events industry, building booths, touring our operation – and the older children even participated in mock job interviews,” says Detra Page, GES sr. manager corporate communications.

GES Take Your Kid To Work Page’s 10-year-old daughter, Jenna, was one of the children who enjoyed the experience, exclaiming, “The Graphics Depot was amazing! The whole day was fun and I learned a lot about how GES produces events, but my favorite part was the Graphics Depot,” adding, “I’d like to work there one day.”GES_Take_Your_Kid_To_Work_Day_f

16-year-old Brianna Haliburton-Brown, daughter of Tonishia Haliburton, a GES human resources specialist, agreed, saying “I thought it was fun hanging out with my mom to see she does all day. We also learned how to go into a job interview, and I learned a lot about how it REALLY is versus what you’re taught in school.  It was cool to get that type of direction and experience.”
