Why You’ll Always Find EdgeLink at C-Level Ski Day

IMG_3048The staffing business doesn’t have to be boring. We find that when you’re hard-wired to a business mentality at all times, you miss out on chances to really connect with people. That’s why we get involved with the Denver Startup week, mix with great minds at Go Code Colorado, CTA (Colorado Technology Association), numerous technology meetups and my personal favorite event: C-Level Ski  Day
