“Help, I need a job!”
OCP can help you get noticed by employers. Whether this is your first job or you are looking for a new opportunity, we work with clients to uncover hidden job markets and improve first impression on paper, on-line and in-person.

Employment trends vary throughout the country and a multitude of variables influence hiring decisions and salary ranges. Fortunately for Houston, the job market is strong and there are opportunities for the skilled and prepared job seeker. For out of town clients, we will tap hidden job markets in your area.
“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.” – Studs Terkel
