October 2017

As of September 25, 2017

As announced last time, we’re beginning a new Director’s Column this month, and will publish it biweekly, on approximately the 1st and 15th of each month.  We’ll cover PSI news items, feature achievements, alert you to latest “hot buttons,” and share information that might be helpful to you.  As the news tradition puts it…

Don’t forget that we can advertise jobs and post resumes on PSI’s website—perhaps we can help you, whether an employer or job seeker, make the right match for mutual benefit!

PSI is fortunate to have several professionals assisting us as requests for our services increases constantly.  We’ll periodically feature these consultants, for whom we and many of our clients are grateful.
