Brief Description: 

I'm in charge of Human Resources for API Technologies' Microwave and Microelectronics Northeast Region, which includes facilities in Auburn, NY, Nashua, NH and Marlborough, MA.  We build things for commercial and defense applications including components in Humvee radios, jet fighter targeting systems, and we even had a chip on the landing platform of the Curiosity Rover on Mars. 

How Career Services and Employer Relations helped you: 

After leaving the Marine Corps, my biggest concerns were about finding ways to make my military resume coincide with the expectations of private sector employers.  Dawn Ross and the Career Services team helped me fine tune my resume to make it more accessible to the civilian world and provided me with great insights about preparing for and actually going to interviews.  They were always there to help with great guidance and a smile on their faces!
