The Prison Post #8 George Colon, SF Made Employer Development

Published on: 30th September, 2020

Our episode this week features George Colon. George Cologne is an expert in employer development. George spent 17 years working in Tech at various start-ups. Starting as a Customer Service Rep., he craved more experience and responsibility. He quickly rose through the ranks, becoming a lead, then a supervisor, performing quality assurance, writing phone/email scripts and training manuals, then eventually performing hiring & training duties, account managing, and business advising. Two and a half years ago, after much disenchantment with start-ups, George found his passion working for an Oakland nonprofit, assisting the Reentry population in connecting with meaningful employment opportunities. George’s position at SFMade continues his trajectory in both experience and passion. George has also ran a successful side business for 20+ years, selling collectibles of every sort online.
