Good-bye Traditional College Career Fairs

Say goodbye to using a firm handshake, direct eye contact, and polished business suit to capture potential employers’ attention.  Say hello to presenting yourself via chat rooms, email, and even instant messaging.  College career fairs have gone virtual.  Welcome to searching for a job during the COVID-19 pandemic.

DISTek Attends ESOP Conference

ESOP Culture

Similar to most events in 2020, the ESOP Association’s Annual Midwest Conference went virtual this year. Initially, the meeting was set to be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but with the current health concerns in mind, I, along with several members of DISTek’s ESOP Communications Committee were able to attend from the comfort of our own homes!

Holiday Tradition of Giving Continues

DISTek elves

The holidays are all about traditions, whether that’s family gatherings at Grandma’s, turkey and stuffing, pie for dessert, or fruitcake from Aunt Eidie. At DISTek, as has been the tradition for the past 10 years, we’ve partnered with a local elementary school that pairs our company with a family in need to provide household supplies as well as a variety of “wish list” items to help make their holiday season a little brighter. This year, our adopted family was a mother and her five children (two of which were 3-month old twins – yes! we purchased a substantial number of diapers!).
