Whether you are looking to fill or looking to advance your career, I would strongly suggest speaking to Scott and his team at OpenArc. Scott and his team provided a consultative and hands on approach throughout the entire process in my recent transition. Their unique approach was unlike anything I've experienced either as a candidate or a hiring manager.
