What most excites you about your work & the contribution you can make?
Since business development is all about pursuing new clients and maintaining existing ones, it gives me the ability to learn about everyone I come into contact with personally and professionally. In simple terms my job is to help companies find top talent within their business. Today’s job market is competitive because the employees have the advantage and our job is to source so the client doesn’t have to. Recruiting is very time consuming and when you have other job functions, the last thing you want to deal with is 50 resumes that don’t pertain to the job. Once we place for the position and the candidate meets my clients’ expectations, that’s when I am completely satisfied.

At the soccer field coaching today’s youth, at home in my recliner or spending time with my wa wa wife.

Undies, medication and money. (Since I’ve answered this question I can buy the other items when I get there).
