corporate contract recruiting (typically paid by the hour either corp-to-corp or W-2) directly for companies nationally. I also do Human Resources consulting such as employment marketing, succession planning, career development/job pathing, standardizing packages (like bonuses, relocation, etc), and setting up employee relations programs (like referral bonuses, thank you recognition, etc). My main area is in the Information Technology areas as I am an ex-software engineer (the 1st 15 years of my career) turned technical recruiter 15 years ago (so the more technical the better!) and I specialize in the large ERP packages (Oracle, PeopleSoft, etc) as well as specialty ERPs like Epic Systems for the medical area or Product Lifecycle Management (PLM - like MatrixOne, Teamcenter, SAP PLM, Windchill, Oracle Agile PLM, etc) and, of course, any and all IT positions (like developers, engineers, database folks, project managers, systems administrators, etc in any discipline). I am currently "on the market" and looking for my next opportunity so please keep me in mind if you hear of any Recruiter openings! ;)
tips are also welcome!).
