After graduating in 2010 with a BA in Economics with a minor in Philosophy, Eric O’Neil started his career in technology as the lead recruiter for Jobspring Partners. In this role Eric helped software developers, network engineers, and system administrators find jobs with technology firms. At the same time he helped firms find the talent that they needed. After a little over 2 years he moved on to CyberCoderswhere he was lead recruiter at its headquarters in Irvine, California.

“Studying Economics at Chico allowed me the opportunity to view social interaction, specifically business, through a set of rational and process-oriented lenses, “Eric stated in a recent email. “In situations that call for strategic planning in my line of work, I tend to evaluate opportunity cost and what actions have the highest likelihood of putting forward the most utility. Possessing this point of view has been immensely helpful.” (Last Updated 10/19/16)
