Career and Internship Opportunities - Los Angeles/Studio City, Calif.; Houston, Tex.; Seattle, Wash.; Richmond, Va./Minneapolis, Minn.

Bill Imada Chairman and Chief Connectivity Officer
Hello Everyone,
 
I hope you are all having a great weekend.  Here are a few job opportunities that were shared with me.  Please review and circulate.
 
I do want to remind everyone that IW Group is not a personnel agency or executive recruiting/headhunting firm.  We are a marketing, communications and advertising agency.  And, we are not circulating these jobs to make money.  We are doing it to be helpful.  Therefore, we are unable to assist with résumé consulting, placement services, or employment counseling.  Additionally, we are unable to sign up for college/university job placement services.  These services are the responsibility of employment agencies, career planning and placement offices, and employers.
 
I do not always have time to send these notices out.  However, when I can find a spare moment, I’ll send these notifications out as a service to friends and business colleagues.
 
Thanks so much for your understanding.
 
All the best,
 
Bill
