Role and Company
Founder & CEO, International Services Group
20 years experience in human resources
Long Beach, CA
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.
Jo has volunteered to be available for private messages. Feel free to send a conversational message but remember to be succinct and mindful of the other person’s time.
