At the end, we guide both you & the candidate through salary negotiations and the closing process, ensuring both sides are satisfied with the final outcome.
In addition to being a hi-touch recruiting partner, we offer boot camps for companies struggling to train their employees on how to properly interview and assess talent.

You walk away with holistic tool-kit, which guides you in your future hiring efforts and ensures you bring in the right talent for your business.

Let me get this straight. You apply for a job via an ATS and upload a resume. Easy peasy.

But, then, you're required to manually fill in each job you've had. WHY, WHEN ALL THIS INFO IS ON YOUR RESUME THAT...YOU...JUST...UPLOADED?!

Yesterday, I met with 45 interns from the Univ of Texas, Austin, who are starting a NY adventure for the Fall. These students are amazing and I write this post to remind you to bring some love to your interns. You are making an impact on their careers. Make it a positive one.

Is there anyone out there who actually gets excited about a one-way video interview?

For ANY company TRULY interested in making the candidate experience a good one, the one-way video interview just sucks the life out of that....Let's do better.


There's racial bias, political bias, biased based on sex/ sexuality...There's also personality bias. Next time you interview a candidate and say "I don't know, there was something about him," dig deeper for the "why." It may be subconscious bias getting in the way.

Knowing you can NOT be successful on a project/job is disappointing, frustrating and stressful. Walking away before it breaks you is powerful, freeing and gives you space to focus on where you can find success. And success is how you find happiness - and pay the bills. You do you

My thoughts today transcend hiring. We have to try to curb our tendencies to assume, categorize, lump. We might share similar ethnicities, jobs, geographies, skin color, dialects but we are all different. If we innately have to judge, then judge on actions, not on assumptions.
