About Jo

I am a 20+ year veteran in the Recruiting and Staffing Industry and have interviewed thousands of career-seekers from every walk of life for every type of top-down position. In the long run, seeking a job or a career are 2 very different things and potential applicants need to understand the difference when applying. A Job is an opportunity that allows one to pay the bills, but a career is what one pursues based upon ones choice of education and lifelong passion. I have written countless articles for Job Seekers and would be proud and honored to answer questions from those who have served our glorious country.
