Share something interesting you have learned about Reinvestment Fund or the industry in your time here.
In my very first week at Reinvestment Fund I learned that every problem does not always have a clear and definite solution. Many situations require “outside the box” thinking to achieve the necessary answer. I look forward to demonstrating my problem solving abilities at Reinvestment Fund.
