Listen now to “On the Job” Episode 4: Back in Action: An Injured Soldier’s Path Forward
The new installment of the weekly podcast from Express Employment Professionals is titled, “Back in Action: An Injured Soldier’s Path Forward”
On this edition of “On the Job” we meet a young man whose life took a radical detour and who landed on his feet in a job where he could help others every day.
Chris Bruer joined the Army in 2006 with the hopes of helping others while serving his country. 10 years and 27 countries later, Chris was forced into medical retirement after suffering a devastating spinal injury. After a decade in the military, Bruer wanted to forge a new path forward and turned to Express Employment Professionals to help him continue his personal mission of helping people in need.
Chris opens the episode by describing how he dropped out of high school at the age of 15 and went right to work.
“I just quit going and then I started working. I got my first job at a golf course, worked there for about a year, then started working odd jobs. Then I quit that job and joined the army,” says Bruer.
Hear his incredible story above.
