Not necessarily. We’re able to help job seekers in all industries from entry level to executive positions. It just depends on what each person is looking for.
Of all the people you've helped, which story has stuck with you?
One that will stick with me was a young lady from North Dakota. She was interested in moving, but was worried she wouldn’t be able to find a position she was satisfied with to replace her current job. After a couple months of commitment to the application process she landed a career in the court system. I was extremely pleased to see that both of our work had paid off.
