The Hoffman Agency in San Jose is seeking an office supervisor to be our Renaissance person. You won’t be expected to paint like Michelangelo, but we would like you to be our problem-solver in the spirit of Leonardo De Vinci. Besides running office events and new employee orientation, our office supervisor helps coordinate HR efforts, manages tech support when a computer goes haywire, and in general keeps our office a positive and productive environment.
