We come to work with an understanding that we have all been in the position of our clients and strive to jump start their career. Our industry longevity makes us highly capable of assisting STEM graduates to communicate their technical and transferable skills effectively during the entire hiring process.

Josh’s vast experience in support of career development for STEM graduates elected him to a seat on the Board of Directors for the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA), as the nonprofit’s treasurer and member of the Executive Committee. The work he does with the NPA provides  rare insight into the daily lives of graduate students, postdocs and early career professionals at their institutions, ultimately familiarizing him with the challenges graduates face when it comes to transitioning into their next career.
