Électron libre attiré par les communications et philanthrope

Éric Simoneau (ericsimoneau.ca) est un professionnel comptant plus de 20 ans d’expérience en ressources humaines et rémunération qui a récemment lancé l’initiative « Une job pour un don à l’organisme de votre choix » afin de donner une nouvelle direction à sa carrière et, surtout, s’amuser !

Par l’entremise de cette initiative, il sollicite des emplois ou des projets enthousiasmants (ex. en communication), sans trop considérer le revenu qu’il pourrait en tirer sachant qu’il a décidé d’en verser la grande majorité à un organisme de bienfaisance. Eh oui, un ancien professionnel en rémunération qui décide de ne pas se préoccuper de sa propre rémunération afin de se consacrer à des projets qui l’intéressent vraiment et, par ricochet, aider la communauté ! (Boucherville)
