After business school, Josh operated two retail bakeries in Philadelphia before pivoting to work as an executive recruiter at a top 4 search firm. Josh has been trained to identify talent, conduct formal interviews, and articulate candidates’ stories so they’ll have the greatest chance of success in a job search, skills that come in handy when guiding his Square One clients to craft MBA applications.
