*Sixty percent of all job openings for large corporations are really “pipeline roles” – they are not really meant to be filled in the next month which is frustrating for job seekers. They either have a large group of people in this role that are term limited or converted to full-time or they are very specific about the skill set. If you send your resume then we have it on file and if I feel you are a fit for a future opening I will email you. Thank you for understanding.
