The Heart of Talent Management: Retention

Hiring to Retain

I have been a recruiter in the trenches.

I have been an executive, retained recruiter hiring senior level positions for hospitals and healthcare organizations. I have been a Manager of Recruitment & Retention for a tech company which housed several start-ups.

I have been a third-party contingency recruiter, hiring sales execs and sales engineers for software companies.

I have been a consultant teaching small companies better hiring practices and how to use social media to compete with larger organizations when it comes to branding, marketing, and hiring.
