I've had the pleasure of knowing Matt Karrandja for over 15 years now as a Trusted Colleague in the Staffing Industry as well as an amazing Mentor. Matt has assisted in aspiring my career over the years.
However what I admire the most about Matt Karrandja, is the incredible work he has done with a charity that he holds close to his heart called Career Ministries of Michigan. Matt was asked by his local Pastor back in 2002 to help out during the Recession with giving some career advice to the local community. Matt was determined to do more than that, he went one step further and built an organized workshop group with the goal of helping get as many people possible back to work.
