Human Resource representatives from Tax Defense Network® attended the University of North Florida Job Fair to scout new talent for upcoming positions in various departments. The event was held on Wednesday, March 30th at the Osprey Career Fair to pair prospective job-seekers with employers throughout the Jacksonville area. Tax Defense Network® was invited to offer opportunities to candidates seeking work in financial, service and administrative fields.

“We were happy to be personally invited to attend,” commented Pat Fekula, Human Resources Director for Tax Defense Network®. “This was well-timed, as Tax Defense Network® is currently expanding and needs a number of new, dedicated employees to help us move forward.” The tax resolution company recently upgraded its offices, moving to the 9th and 10th floors of building 100 in Bank of America’s business complex. This expansion effort represents Tax Defense Network’s® most ambitious growth period to date, as they now occupy over 50,000 square feet of space in the heart of the Southside business community.

Candidates met with Corporate Recruiter Jennifer Hanna to discuss forthcoming opportunities with Tax Defense Network®. The award-winning tax resolution organization is currently seeking additional staff members to fill the company’s need for specialists to accommodate a widely-expanded client base. “This was an excellent experience, and afforded us the opportunity to meet with some of Jacksonville’s best and brightest,” noted Jennifer Hanna. “I look forward to speaking with many of the attendees in the coming weeks to discuss how we can help with their career plans.”

Tax Defense Network® has been in a state of rapid expansion over the past few years. In addition to upgrading their offices, the tax resolution group has also improved their technological infrastructure to provide faster, more intuitive services to their clients. The UNF Job Fair is only one of several employment initiatives currently underway to locate talented and qualified applicants, while also serving to enrich employment prospects in Northeast Florida.

“The City of Jacksonville has been very good to us,” affirmed Tax Defense Network® Vice President Frank Valinho. “Our amazing staff is comprised almost entirely of Jacksonville residents, and we now want to expand our ranks as far as we can. The fact that we can offer talented individuals a unique career path while bringing new jobs to the community allows us to give back.” Vice President Valinho and his brother, President Joe Valinho, have been instrumental in creating valuable new positions in virtually every department at Tax Defense Network®.

Mr. Joe Valinho, was quick to point out that the recent job fair was far from the end of the company’s employment expansion campaign. “Anyone seeking a challenging, rewarding career should inquire about upcoming opportunities,” he said. “We provide a critical service for taxpayers throughout the United States, but we can’t move to the next level without expanding our incredibly talented team.”
