There is power in connecting with others and seeing yourself reflected in the faces, and experiences, of others in the same job hunt path. Tami does an excellent job bringing important pieces of the job hunt process front and center for everyone to hear and discuss. Her experience in this area makes her a strong resource and someone that you should be connected to in our community.A. Goodwin
