Pedro Hughes commented on Leonardo Ibarra's group Latinos and Latinas in Sales
"Cesar, I'll let you know if my employer decides to go the outsourcing route. Right now, they're looking to hire in-house IT specialists. If that changes, you'll be the first to be made aware."

Profile Information

About me
Pedro is the American-born son of an immigrant father and first-generation American mother. Through hard work, sometimes working two jobs at once, both became college-educated. Pedro's father started home health care business, his mother became a nurse, and later a nurse practitioner. She is the owner and proprietor of a primary care health clinic, and also a skin care spa and nutrition shop.

Needless to say, Pedro has never been at a loss for motivation, having witnessed his parents go from being very poor to successful enough to put four children through college, and one through medical school.

Pedro works in the IT field for a company called Egan Medical. The business is an online retailer or home health care and medical equipment products and supplies.
What is your current career title or dream job?
I would love to be the retired owner of a miniature cruise ship (basically a massive yacht), whose job would be to lay out on the boat's main deck, surrounded by a harem of beautiful women feeding me strawberries and grapes in the sun.
