“TAG is working diligently to help technology companies locate and connect the best and brightest candidates in the field. We feel that many of our returning soldiers would be a perfect fit for building Georgia’s Technology future. At a time when soldiers are looking for their next destination, we want to make sure they know all that Georgia has to offer in the way of opportunities and success,” said Tino Mantella, President, Technology Association of Georgia.
