I work as the Director of Career Services for ComputerTraining.con in Chantilly, VA. I would love the opportunity to discuss with you the possibility of collaborating on placing some of my students in the IT positions that you recruit for. Our resumes referrals are absolutely free of charge and there are never any fees attached. We are only looking to help our students.
We get students with a variety of IT and other experience, along with military backgrounds, security clearances, and more. Please contact me if you would be interested in working together. I think this could be a very beneficial relationship. I can be reached at 800-733-5641 x 2901
