He has worked in the online recruiting industry since 1999 when he built and launched his own local job board network, AllCountyJobs.com. Over the years he grew that company into a popular regional job search tool that served the Northeast. In between, wrote a job hunting book as well as experimenting with plenty of other recruiting sites, job boards and mobile apps.
