I sent a message to everyone, but ImageMovers Digital - Robert Zemeckis' new motion capture, feature animated film start up - is looking for one or two senior full-cycle recruiters and possibly a sourcer. Please email Shannon at if you are interested or know someone who might be. Thanks!

Geoff I don't know of anyone in this network that is going to Sourcecon, but I will sure be there. I'll see you during the beginning event. Should be pretty cool.

I wanted to let all of you know that I have decided to begin looking for a new position. Working for the company that acquired the little HR consulting firm I've been at has unfortunately not turned out to be a very positive experience. If any of you hear of a contract or FTE recruiting or staffing mgmnt position that would allow me to work either completely virtual or on-site 2-3 weeks out of a month, I would very much appreciate the lead. I've also increased my general HR knowledge and expertise over the last couple of years so a combination recruiting/HR position could also be a possible fit. I really don't want to relocate away from Bend but I'm willing to work down there as needed. And then I'd get to see all of you more often! :)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Thanks for creating this group! I am always trying to help my client beyond writing the resume by putting them in touch with leads for positions. This is awesome!
