  • Joe: Local entrepreneur with several successful startups under my belt. My first job out of college was with EDS – a big 5, at the time, consulting company. I focused my career on software development and over the years I have worked for large corporations, small, medium and start-up companies (as well as being involved in several successful start ups, most notably co-founding a marketing company). All of that experience is culminating with CVShout - dedicated to helping talented, motivated individuals create a brand for themselves that showcases the talents, expertise and experience to stand out from the crowd so they can go after that dream job.
