I may be ramping up some West Coast recruiting soon and hope to build out a network of contacts there to make things smoother in the ramp-up. I may also come across people in that process you may find beneficial to your work. Let me know if I can be of assistance in the future.
I noticed you work for a med device company in Indy, my focus is the Life Science industry (pharma, device, health care IT) but I do a ton of med device work at the corporate and executive level. Perhaps, we may be able to help each other out someday.
I also have to agree with you about the ATS available today, you would think they would be a tad bit more recruiter friendly. We use Kenexa (webhire) which has its own unique set of issues!
Weclome to California!
