03-09-20: Talent Knows No Boundaries

The coronavirus has impacted people and business worldwide. Businesses are being proactive. Thankfully, our clients continue to recruit talent. We have been getting new job openings and there is a pent up demand to hire. The only change is that more companies are using technology as an interviewing tool. Skype, Google hangouts, Video conferencing, etc. are replacing being onsite.

As “Relationship Recruiters” we embrace the holistic approach to sourcing and placing talent. We put the time and effort to get to know our candidates. They benefit from our in depth client experience and ability to coach our talent to successful placements.

We welcome the opportunity to represent you.
