I first met Tor as a high energy young recruiter. Tor has worked countless hours tirelessly, and perfected his craft. Tor has been a shining champion for veterans throughout the time I have know him. I have actually refered several veterans to Tor as a recruiter myself. As a former Director and a current Program Manager I would hire Tor with absolutely no reservation as a Lead Recruiter and even as a Recruiting Manager. Tor has the experience, the work ethic, and the drive to assist veterans in getting hired. It is my sincere belief that you could not find a better applicant for any recruiting leadership or recruiting position that he decides to apply for.

A few years ago I met Tor Cannady by chance. We were attending a seminar or training event. What I do remember is we were in the parking lot talking about careers, backgrounds and what our pursuit to success would be. We exchanged contact information and parted ways. We remained connected here on LinkedIn. I say all this because that brief encounter with Tor, left a positive impression on me. Throughout our engagement on LinkedIn, I have become to know that Tor Cannady is a great individual and professional who does care about what he does and the outcome and consequences of his actions. He is laser focused on taking care of the veteran community, and for that I am really thankful to Tor. Wonderful human being.
