“O2O’s education and training has equipped me with the skills to better understand analytical behaviors, customer characteristics, and social styles. The program has built up my confidence and will complement my existing sales and recruiting experience as I navigate through to my future career outside of the Marines. I am thankful for the support and direction that Onward to Opportunity provides.”
