Spindler MAP Testimonial

“If it were not for my involvement in HSC, and the experiences of HSC’s preparation, application, and job seeker follow through, I would not have been qualified for my current position with the US Department of Labor assisting Disabled Veterans find employment.  Nor would I know nearly as many job seeking techniques and job contacts which has helped my current veteran clients were it not for my participation in HSC.
