#23 – The Part Where You Give of Yourself Instead of Giving Up – Jon Thurmond

jon-thurmondThe Reach West Radio show welcomes Jon Thurmond, Southeast Regional Human Resources Manager for Team Fishel, a utility construction firm. He’s worked in the construction, public utility, healthcare, and third party recruiting industries, in roles encompassing Employee/Labor Relations, Recruiting, Training, and HR leadership. After being unemployed a few years ago, Jon took part in a career transition group where he learned to train adult learners to use social media, which lead to opportunities to present on job search, interviewing, and career fairs. He’s now the Social Media Director for the Virginia SHRM State Council and is a member of the Capital Region Workforce Development Board which serves the greater Richmond, VA area. On the Workforce Development Board, Jon helps determine how millions of government dollars are applied to help veterans, the disabled, and at risk youth get training and jobs. Jon has inspired others to “put themselves out there” and he believes you should give of yourself instead of giving up.
