Musts: - Live in Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Arizona, Utah or Texas - Associate degree completed - Must be able to pass financial background check (have clean financial history) - Ability to begin work on 9/25/2023 * no job hoppiness * they will want to know why they have gaps on their resume or why they left quickly from a company. Education Requirements: • • • IF Bachelor's Degree - anything except sciences (like biology) and healthcare degrees IF HS Diploma - they need to have come from a call center or helpdesk type job where they can speak to their attention to detail and working through a process. No job hoppiness. IF Masters Degree - only education or social work MS degrees, I have been advised to tread lightly sending over candidates with masters degrees.
