We sat down with Jim and asked him the following:
- What do you like most about working at Kimmel & Associates?
I enjoy the waste industry and its colorful characters that keep life interesting. No two days are ever the same and everyone has a unique story to share.
- What can clients and candidates expect from you?
We try to create a win-win situation for both companies and candidates. If both feel lucky to have landed the other and still feel that way years later, we have accomplished our mission.
- Personal interests?
Bicycling, hiking, hunting, and attempting to strengthen friendships and family ties.
