Career Listings

“The career listing on the website turned out to be a tremendous success. I’ve hired one individual as a result of it and I’ve also got an offer on the table for another. Listing on the BCxA site gave me a much more focused audience for my needs, and the quality of those three individuals was superb. The BCxA ad was a great value and I will certainly continue to use the website to post my career listings in the future.”
