A few years ago, Max decided that there was a better way to bring the community to business, and business to community. He worked with a coworker who was also a veteran and started a group called “Get Hired in Tech”. This started in a small coffee shop working with veterans and the public creating a space to work on resumes and to give job search tips. In the first year of the group, it gained 500 members. In the second year, the group has continued to grow and is approaching 1000 members. This made it the fastest growing job search groups in the region and one of the fastest growing networking groups in the country according to meetup.com. The group was re-branded “Get Hired (Tech & Healthcare) and has eight different meetings per month in the tech and healthcare sectors. This consists of four coffee groups, two in Portland, two in Vancouver, every other week meetings and keynote speakers in Vancouver, a West Portland event with a keynote speaker once per month held at the University of Portland West Campus, and a healthcare meetup that happens once per month in Vancouver, WA. These groups are for people of all skill levels looking at a career in tech, healthcare and business or anyone interested in their job search.
