My professional work involves connecting employers and job seekers through our niche job boards and job fairs, ClearedJobs.Net and CyberSecJobs.com. I was able to leverage my last duty station (recruiting medical officers) into face to face relationships that ultimately led to this position. I'm happy to connect with any vets looking for tips on networking, resumes, or job search advice.
