If You Could See What I See

When I started in this business, I was famous for ringing a cowbell to show the excitement of a great job order.  These days, I would sometimes like to ring that bell when I interview a great candidate instead.  It takes a lot of digging to find the best gems!

We eliminate many poor applications immediately and some additional candidates after interviewing them, so it's fair to say that everyone made Active in our files is a viable candidate for a client somewhere.  The skills testing available to me backs up my natural pickiness about who is suited to what.  If you could see what I see in the file of every Active candidate, you would understand both my enthusiasm and logic when I make a referral to you.

Here's one example of a candidate I'd like to make some noise for today:  Coming off an online Bachelor's degree, Kelly choose us as a means of exploring career options.  Her skills in AP/AR, customer service, MS Office, and payroll processing were absolutely outstanding.   With great experience showing administrative capability behind the scenes and in smaller office settings, Kelly now wants to take on more customer-focused work and responsibility.  She's absolutely ready for it, and may even be placed somewhere by the time you read this!  Kelly is a gem whose tests backed up her interview and career plans in every possible way.  I am not hesitating to present her for a higher-level opening than she has ever held previously thanks to all those factors at my disposal.

Looking forward to doing the first round of your interviewing and providing facts and recommendations like this one!  Click here to get me started.
