Hello, and welcome to You’re Hired. My name is Lorne Epstein. I am a talent acquisition professional with over twenty years’ experience in the industry. You’re Hired is broadcast on WERA 96.7 from Arlington, VA and will include special guests as well as tips and tricks to help you in your career and life in general. I started You’re Hired as a way to discuss critical issues about jobs and careers and teach people how to have a rewarding, satisfying career.
Ashoka was formed in 1980 by Bill Drayton with the mission of investing in the people and patterns of collaborative entrepreneurship that are necessary in an everyone a changemaker world. Or to put another way, make the world a better place by teaching people to create positive change. Who can argue with that?
