Premier Virtual Presents Tech Tuesday Talks – A Podcast Showcasing How Their Company Impacts Real People

Connecting qualified candidates with the right jobs, and aiding employers around the world in finding top notch candidates to fill their needs has been the driving force behind Premier Virtual. The company has been at the forefront of supporting companies and employers worldwide over the last year and a half, leading the way when the pandemic hit, and giving companies the tools they needed to keep their businesses going. The innovative and proprietary platform from Premier Virtual has powered 2,500 virtual job fairs, connecting 25,000 employers to over 250,000 job seekers. The team knows that their work is changing lives every day, however they rarely get to hear from individual job seekers about the impact it has had. Through their weekly podcast Tech Tuesday Talk, marketing director John Garcia got the amazing opportunity to speak with one man, Mike Janus, about how the Premier Virtual platform has impacted his life.

Joining the Marines at age 17, Janus served his country for many years, including providing security during the tragedy of 9/11. Janus earned a degree in business administration, however, during his senior year of college, he made a choice that would change the entire course of his life. After a few beers, he got behind the wheel, resulting in a tragedy. His best friend died, and Janus was responsible. Janus knew that he had to make a change, feeling that he had been left behind to fill a new purpose. Janus began working to spread awareness, writing a book, and becoming a public speaker, sharing his story, hoping to prevent another tragedy from drunk driving.

Speaking all over the country to high schools, colleges, and communities, Janus found himself in a tough spot when the pandemic hit. With no full-time traditional job to fall back on, he quickly found himself in a tight spot, needing reliability in income for his young daughter. Attending a United States Veterans Chamber of Commerce Virtual Job Fair, organized by Colonel Larry Miller, Janus connected with FEMA through the Virtual Premier Platform. He describes the experience and how impactful it was on his life, in a very short amount of time.

“It was so easy, and there were so many options. I connected with FEMA and literally within three days they called me, interviewed me, and I was on the job within a week. And it has been great, it has opened me up to new connections and ways to help people. I am now working for FEMA and getting back to speaking, doing virtual events, slowly getting back to in-person events. This platform has made all the difference for me. “

Janus concludes, “It has been a rough year for a lot of people, and if I can show them that if I, in my life, can overcome all this, then they can overcome anything that comes their way.” Learn more about Mike Janus and his book “Live With Honor, Turning Tragedy Into Triumph” here.

Company CEO Steven Edwards is also a veteran, serving in the 82nd airborne Division of the United States Army, as well as the Florida National Guard. The company works with people all over the world and loves hearing about all the people they have connected with. A personal story like this from a veteran means all that much more. Garcia and Edwards describe Premier Virtual as a parachute that has stopped the freefall the business world found itself in when COVID-19 hit, and is the number one virtual career fair platform in the workforce development industry.
