The magic at Hudson Job Search is entirely created by an army of devoted and talented volunteers serving as Advisors. This post features a fifteen-year Advisor and valuable resource for our non-profit organization. Although most of our Hudson Job Search Advisors are not professionals in the space of career transition, Tim Slager is an exception, and we are lucky to have him.
