Finding Hidden Talent
I love the opportunity of visiting with other staffing professionals. I enjoy hearing about what they are doing, how they have overcome obstacles, new lines of business they are pursuing and overall what is working for them. In addition, I like to share my experience. Prior to joining Avionté I spent over ten years in staffing and recruiting. Although not an expert, I saw my far share of action and learned a lot along the way. I had just been promoted to Assistant Manager when the company I worked for decided to start a direct hire division. They had looked at several options, such as training internal staff to recruit for high level positions or bringing on a team that already had experience in recruiting and acquiring new orders. This division would operate separately from the temp division, but we would share customers.
Are you using your signals?
As many of you know, I travel a lot. I almost always rent a car and have come to some conclusions: 1. Best City with no traffic any time of any day: Reno, NV 2. Worst City for traffic: Atlanta, GA by far worse than NYC or LA or Paris or London (it once took me 3 hours to go 8 miles in Atlanta on a Tuesday; I’m renting a ten-speed from now on.)
