Evolving Situation Regarding COVID-19


Situations continue to evolve with regard to COVID-19 responses. Some businesses have postponed hiring, while others are making changes to the process, and so this may have an impact on timing and our ability to best connect you with employment opportunities.  However, the HBI team remains dedicated and committed to our work in serving you. We will do our best to update you as we continue to learn more information.
