Customer Testimonial
 
"I would like to take this time to thank you for organizing and putting on today's JOB FAIR in Colorado Springs. This is the first time in my life that I have been un-employed and filed for un-employment. The JOB FAIR gave me the chance to be pro-active and to retain my self respect. Hopefully it will lead to something." Thank You, Sincerely Rene
