Hi Leigh. Your post gives us several interesting topics to choose from. I'm hoping this might a couple interesting conversations here.
Where to begin? How about - have at it! Your enthusiasm for the staffing arts is evident. Sounds like you've uncovered a few positions that the locals have not. I can't see any reason in the world for you to not pursue them.
I'm wondering just how many of us (US Recruiters) may just be missing the work right under their noses. (You know we're in a recession......so, well, uh......you know..........they'll probably just say no anyway......)
Just kidding of course! If I can help you in your journey I'd love to connect on Skype. My account is jerry.albright
