"It is absolutely inspiring to be around people who have gone through so much and are so determined to start over and make the most of their lives. We all have so much to learn from each other. And Defy does an incredible job encouraging their EITs to believe in themselves again. The Defy EITs we've hired join P.S. Kitchen with a professional, hardworking, and gritty mindset."
April Tam Smith,
Founder and CEO of P.S. Kitchen, a vegan restaurant in New York City that donates its proceeds to charity and creates jobs for marginalized New Yorkers. So far, P.S. Kitchen has employed seven Defy EITs.
"As cofounder at Telzio it’s important to me that my company gives back to the community and serves a positive purpose in society. It can be as simple as providing a space for events, or providing internship opportunities for EITs. The EITs have been some of the hardest working individuals I’ve worked with in my career. As we continue to grow and our hiring demands (and challenges) increase, I’m confident in Defy’s ability to deliver vetted, reliable candidates."
