Upcoming job fair will help fill the more than 1,200 new jobs
ORLANDO, Fla. and Charlotte, N.C. – April 21, 2011 – Connextions, Inc., the leader in technology-enabled health insurance distribution solutions, announced today the expansion of its business with the addition of a fifth location in Charlotte, North Carolina.
