Seeking mentor in the mortgage lending industry


Matt Tracy Omaha, NE

I’m interested in connecting with someone from the mortgage lending industry who is willing to talk with me about their experiences and strategies for starting out in the business. I transitioned out of the Air Force about 6 years ago, have worked in higher education since then, and I'm considering future professional opportunities.
