Lastly… what do you like about working for JobGetter

My Grandfather always said to me “Leah, if you do a job that you love, you’ll never go to work a day in your life.” My family instilled an incredibly strong work ethic in me and my career path has become a very large part of my identity. Thus, I’ve always believed that gainful employment is the key to gaining a sense of independence, pride and prosperity in life. JobGetter is all about helping more people find work that they love and that’s something I’m super proud to support. I love coming into the office each day and knowing that I’m part of a purpose-driven team that is committed to changing the world for the better.
