Okay, so it's a tough economy for some industries and for others things are starting to pick up a bit. Don't get me wrong; it will take till 2014 till we can recover some of the jobs that we lost (at least here in the Capital area) during the 2008 and 2009 time frame. I listened to a presentation about a month ago given by Dr. Stephen S. Fuller which substantiates this in ample detail.
As most of us know the traditional manor in which we communicate has changed drastically since the mailing of a resume for a job submission which we saw published in the newspaper. That process took days or even weeks to filter through.
I thought that I would try something a bit different in order to help shorted this up a bit. We all know that the best time to put feelers out there is while we are gainfully employed. I'm not running for the hills, nor is my present an uneasy fit. I am simply considering a change of environment and or landscape. I am particularly interested in exploring a career where HR meets marketing and recruitment.
If you are still reading this (I appreciate it) you would know that I am not a greedy person. I would like assistance in identifying a new corporate environment in the DC area where I may call home. When I took this challenging job, I was looking to take the next step in my career as a human resource and recruiting professional to continue to focus on one of the most difficult skill sets to recruit for and eventually take a leadership role where I could work creatively and autonomously. I have waited for the economy to stabilize a bit before turning my efforts towards a career search.
I have recruited and successfully placed architects, engineers, bankers, and now most recently information technology professionals. I have managed and trained others regarding on-boarding procedures within the corporate environment as well as third party. Excelling with direct and indirect cold-calling strategies, while contributing to help serve departmental goals and other human resource activities, are all duties that I enjoy on a daily basis. My track record is excellent, while producing $185,000 in gross margin earnings for my current employer. I offer more than ten (10) years of experience to any employer.
