WICHITA — After a number of years working for others in the staffing and human resource field, C.J. Owens is now starting his own employment agency.
Summit Employment will open in the new year in almost 800 square feet at the southwest corner of Third and Waco.
Craig Simon of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
Most recently, Owens has been human resource director for Mill-Tel.
“I miss the aspect of helping people,” he says of being on the other side of the business. Owens says he wants to help workers with temporary and permanent placements.
“That’s really kind of what I’m wanting to get back into, and that’s really kind of the drive behind this.”
Owens says he likes helping people at each step of their job searches, from creating resumes to coaching on interviewing.
“It’s just that whole process that’s very enjoyable for me.”
