seattle-around-town-holiday

Seattle is a bustling place to be all year round. But it is especially busy, during the holiday season! So just like Seattle this time of year, KellyMitchell is taking no time off, and our Seattle office is bursting with energy! So in honor of all the growth we’re experiencing in Seattle and our open positions as a Recruiter or Business Development Manager, we decided to highlight the Emerald City, in this month’s Holiday Edition of KM Around Town! So grab some egg nog or hot coco as we explore Seattle during the holiday season!
