According to Lowe’s career division of its website “At Lowe’s, we’re fully dedicated to helping talented and committed individuals build strong, rewarding careers. And nowhere is this dedication more readily apparent than within our Human Resources department”.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
