May 17, 2013 IITTI Annual General Meeting in Arizona

The major outcome of our Arizona meeting with Christina Ong, Deborah King, Lynne Marks, Kimberly Law, Lilian Bustamate, Riet de Vlieger, and Patrick Chun was that we should set up a free-of-charge self-test tool to allow HR departments to become more aware of how IITTI can help in sorting through job applicants.
