We trust them because of their contributions to our company and it’s work. Some are fresh grads or housewives or our own fresh grads!
We offer part time, temporary work for seniors, stay at home moms, college students who are on legal status or on OPT. The work given to them depends on their specializations! All gadgets are given and all training is provided.
