    AHA, that is great. I have a question why don’t you host events like this in Los Angeles or Fort Worth?
    One other thing, you still have me on your records as active, I remain interested in positions posted in Asia Pacific, the Philippines.
    Please have someone contact me from HR/Recruiting
    Thank you,
