CareersUSA® CEO Marilyn J. Ounjian to Speak at Florida Atlantic University's Barry Kaye College of Business

Boca Raton, FL —Marilyn J. Ounjian, founder and chief executive officer of CareersUSA, an award-winning national staffing firm, will speak at Florida Atlantic University's Barry Kaye College of Business on Thursday, November 20, 2008.

Executive MBA students will have the opportunity to hear her personal story of the founding of CareersUSA and to learn her secrets to business success.

Despite adversity, Ounjian was able to carve a distinct niche in the staffing industry with the company she built from her kitchen table in 1981. By 1988, CareersUSA was recognized by Inc. Magazine as "One of America's Fastest Growing Companies." In Florida, Ounjian has enjoyed accolades that include the South Florida Business Journal's 2008 Women Who Mean Business award, the 2005 Business Woman and Business of the Year awards, and being selected a regional finalist for Ernst & Young's 2007 Entrepreneur of the Year.

Ounjian enjoys speaking to students, she says, because, "I feel it's important for the business community to set an example and to inspire others to succeed."

To ensure that students have the opportunity to hear success stories and receive business advice from some of the area's most successful entrepreneurs and business executives, Neuman Pollack, Ph.D., director of executive relations for the Barry Kaye College of Business, utilizes his own personal list which he has acquired over the years, along with volunteers, he says.
