“We’re excited to provide this opportunity to both the M&R community and as an added value for local North Carolina career seekers and companies looking for highly skilled employees,” said Jay Padesky, CMRP, chairman of the 19th Annual SMRP Conference. “I have no doubt this will be the most comprehensive opportunity these businesses will have to find the top talent they need to expand and develop their organizations, and that M&R job seekers will have to find the next step in their careers.”
