Meet the Consortium Recruiting Team

Since most of the Consortium recruiting team is new since our last season, we thought we’d introduce the entire team.

The Consortium recruiting season is in full swing. Members of the Consortium recruiting team are already answering questions at a blistering pace, and soon, they’ll be hitting the road to host a number of recruiting events we have lined up.
