I’m looking to hire an additional Recruiter for my team – business is brisk, we are growing, blah, blah, blah. We’ve been in business 31 years, profitable all 31 years. Part of that profitability is we don’t overpay for talent. That is a good way of saying, we’ve been very good at hiring entry level college kids and turning them into very good recruiters. Basically, I have some upfront investment into teaching them the trade and that investment pays off in the long run.

If you Google “Tim Sackett” you’ll find our Tim, and a truck driver chaplain. Our Tim is NOT the truck driver chaplain, although how awesome would that be if he was!? He is a prolific writer in the HR and TA space who just happens to also run an Engineering and IT contract staffing agency (HRU Technical Resources) out of Michigan. He also writes every day at his own blog, the Tim Sackett Project. Weirdly, he’s known as an expert in workplace hugging, which was kind of cool years ago, but now seems painfully creepy, but we still love him and he’s fairly harmless. Tim is also on the board of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), lifetime Michigan State Spartan fan, husband to a Hall of Fame wife, 3 sons, and his best friend Scout. He also wrote a book with SHRM called The Talent Fix, you can find it on Amazon.
