That's what I mean. In your situation it doesn't seem worth it, but what about others' experience? For WAI it seems like Fed Ex is a huge player, sponsorship, booth, hiring seminars. But I have no idea if that is standard or a one-off deal. And if that is standard but you get no "in" or even a chance to give your resume to someone, what's the point?

They dont need your resume. With your email address they can pull up your application. You would thinkthat attending these might give you a few bonus points to raise your score for their algorithm.

FWIW, I got my invite 3 weeks after I wrote my email down at OBAP this pst August. Who knows if it was what triggered the system, but it was enough for me to feel good about spending the dollars and time. YMMV.
