National Director Design & (Re)Construction HOSPITALITY – Supply Chain Jobs in Profile #4

Thank you for joining us for today’s Supply Chain Jobs in Profile (this one is a bit off the SCM track but certainly something we do alot of), where we profile one of our most exciting searches and show you why it stands out. This is a field where hot candidates are in really high demand. They’re often in more demand than even they realize, and that’s when we’re able to open their eyes to career possibilities they might not have considered. It takes a great opportunity for some great candidates to consider a move to the next level. They might be comfortable in their job, or day I say it, just not considering what other options exist. Picture a great passive candidate browsing job descriptions to fill time on their lunch hour. They might be uninspired by the jargon-filled lists of keywords that make up the job descriptions and press the “Back” button on their browser. Why? Because those job description haven’t conveyed why someone truly should be intrigued and want the job. It hasn’t conveyed why a job is worth moving for.That’s where we come in. A professional recruiter provides the human touch and creates the possibility of engagement in conversation. But most of all, we help our candidates’ see their careers like a game of chess – and that means making career considerations three and four moves ahead. We pay attention to not just where you are, but where you’re going, and we encourage you to think big and broad.
