  • Most Important Thing I’ve Learned

  • Self-Reflection

    By Hunter Krupka What Am I Good At? I believe that above all, I am good at forging and maintaining relationships. I consider myself a people person, and enjoy the company of others.

  • IPIP Results and Reactions

    By Hunter Krupka After completing the IPIP-NEO test, I reviewed my scores and found the following.

    By Hunter Krupka My most recent application that I did was for Consolidated Electrical Distributors.
