Expert Witness Response E-146226

It is my job to recruit software engineers, I have been a recruiter since 1981. I typically place 12 software engineers a year, but in the past it has been as many as 50 a year. I am extremely well versed in recruiting for business to business startups and business to consumer startups. I am involved in a startup company now, I have worked with other startups that place people. An injury such as this would absolutely impact the career trajectory of a software engineer. It would take a special kind of employer to believe otherwise. Employers are very demanding and they have very high requirements on their software engineers.
