I'm honored and humbled to have collaborated with and impacted such incredible companies, brands, institutions, but more importantly, people. Here are some of the nice things they have to say about working with me, my companies, and my team.
I met Emily several years ago at a conference and was immediately drawn to her engaging and energetic style. We invited her to SJC Brooklyn as the keynote for our closing student leadership event in spring 2020 and were then turned upside down by the COVID-19 Crisis. Emily quickly and happily agreed to present virtually and provided career tips and actionable steps that inspired students. Thank you, Emily, for your encouraging, thoughtful, and motivational talk. I hope to welcome you to our beautiful SJC Brooklyn campus in the near future.

I was thrilled when Emily accepted our invitation to be the keynote speaker for our annual student leadership conference at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. I was introduced to FindSpark through a former colleague and had high hopes for Emily’s competency, and she blew me away. Emily is engaging, empowering, and inspirational, all while being completely relatable to students. She delivered a presentation that covered important career topics in an innovative and creative way (I’ve never seen a room full of students so interested in professional development before!) Our student leaders were captivated by her fresh and authentic advice - evidenced by social media engagement, program evaluations and the line of students who waited to speak with Emily after her presentation. I am grateful FindSpark exists and can't wait to collaborate with Emily again soon.

We created the MMC Career Launch Summit: A Networking Meetup for Outstanding Students, an event unlike any we had ever hosted at Marymount Manhattan College before. Emily Miethner guided our small but mighty Career Services staff in thinking strategically about marketing our event, to attract a wide number of students. Then she presented as our keynote speaker on the day preparing our students to network in person and online. She did this with warmth, humor, and intelligence. Emily helped us curate our event which ended up being a rousing success, for which we are grateful.

Emily is an amazing combination of dynamism and humility. She lives her message and is truly able to effortlessly connect with her audience to simply convey the importance of a robust network and social media practicality. Her contagious enthusiasm for her field, and her broad social media background serve up tools, tips and a wonderful array of resources.
Keesha Cameron, Associate Director
Emily Miethner is an engaging, passionate speaker who connects very well with millennials! Emily recently spoke at the Hofstra University- Zarb School of Business Dean’s reception to a large group of MBA/MS Students. Emily gave our students helpful tips for personal branding, and incorporated powerful messages of inspiration and courage such as “Do what drives you” and “Do what scares you”. As a young entrepreneur herself, Emily walks the talk. I highly recommend Emily as a motivational speaker and hope to have her return again to speak to our students.

Emily presented a fun, informative and thorough presentation about social media for NYU students during our Welcome Week. She has a great style for sharing information and engaging students.

We brought Emily in to talk with our team about social media. She is extremely knowledgeable, on top of the trends and passionate about the power of connection. She was well prepared, engaging and thoughtful. It’s wonderful to see someone with so much enthusiasm for her work, passion for sharing her knowledge and years of experience in social media. I have also had the pleasure of seeing her in action at one of her FindSpark events. She’s a terrific host and moderator and has a strong following. Emily is going places and we’ll continue to follow her in her career.

Emily prepared beautifully for our audience of arts and arts education professionals. She was charming as a presenter and her confidence and knowledge was impressive to all. Emily is also very approachable and willing to go the extra step to help people navigate the ever changing and challenging world of social media. She brought a fresh energy to what could have been just a typical, informative panel discussion. Emily shines and is willing to share her enthusiasm and extensive experience with all present.

Emily is one of the most motivated, original, and capable professionals I've ever worked with. Her finger is on the pulse of social media and she is always looking for the next best thing and developing exciting new ways to give her projects an edge. A master networker, Emily knows the right people and has the connections necessary to make things happen. If given the opportunity, I'd hire her again hands down.

Emily Miethner is a total powerhouse. She threw my book launch party last year on short notice, and with 200 attendees it went off without a hitch. Emily was incredibly proactive, communicative, creative and focused on details large and small. Moreover, I was blown away by her leadership ability. I would trust her with an event of any size (or importance) and would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Life After College
FINDSPARK EMPLOYERS & HIGHER ED PARTNERS
FindSpark has been instrumental in aiding my recruitment goals. I have personally hired 3 interns who within their first few months are all getting outstanding feedback and recommendations for future hire. But beyond the hires, I now have a constant pipe of talent coming to me through events and job postings. Not only have I passed along many FindSpark applicants to my counterparts, but I now have a wait list of colleagues who want to join me at future events!
The preparedness of attendees was impressive. My team and I were impressed with the many conversations we had with such promising young professionals. And the timely, professional follow-up by email or Linkedin from attendees is a testament that they are listening to the great advice of the Findspark team.

I've had the good fortune to partner with Emily and FindSpark for multiple events. There are few organizations who execute such fabulous events so well--the organization accounts for absolutely everything--from planning, to advertising, to follow up. When we [AOL] co-hosted FindSpark's' "Interview to the Top" event, Emily and her team rounded up a diverse, funny, and poignant panel of professionals--and made sure to ask thought provoking questions that audience members often forget to ask, and should definitely know the answers to. I was impressed with the caliber of students and young professionals in the audience, and loved the follow-up article posted after the event! I have no doubt that this organization will continue to grow, as it is already a great resource and provides meaningful networking opportunities for young professionals!
FindSpark has been a tremendous resource for our students at Sarah Lawrence College. Not only does FindSpark maintain a comprehensive list of internship and entry-level opportunities, but their noteworthy programming and networking events have been beyond informative and successful for many students. As a Career Services office, we are passionate about helping students find career success and we’re happy to have FindSpark as a valuable resource and partner. Our office has recommended and even sponsored students to attend the many events that FindSpark coordinates. These events have led to our students finding internship opportunities, making connections in their industry of interest, and educating students on the many topics of careers given by industry professionals. We’ve found that FindSpark helped with opening many untapped doors for our students.

FINDSPARK COMMUNITY MEMBERS
I joined FindSpark last year and have been 100% satisfied with every event, class, mixer, etc. FindSpark always finds a way to teach and prepare me for whatever position I'm interested in. I really appreciate the consist help and push that FindSpark provides. I've recommended it to all my friends and New York colleagues.
This is one of the best networking experiences I have had in a friendly and less formal environment. I am hoping to use all the valuable knowledge and tips I received from all panelists in my next career path.
I've never had so much fun at a business event! It didn't feel like work at all.
