Hi - I thought I would tap into this wealth of recruiting minds to see if anyone has any advice - I have over 13 years executive admin/HR/Recruiting support experience - supporting VP of Operations and National Director of Recruiting for a global IT consulting firm. The majority of my 13 plus years were spent supporting national teams virtually from my remote home office. Are there any suggestions or ideas to tap into any companies that utilize virtual support for recruiting staff - or any suggestions on branching out to support multiple recruiting firms? (besides the normal searches for "telecommute" and "remote based") Thanks for any advice ! Jenny
Valentino and I live in the same area, many miles away from the tragedy. I'm a Mother of 5 and a Grandmother of 19 (I'm not really as old as I sound), and I'm still reeling from this. I'm finding it hard to go about my day without thinking of what those people are going through. I happen to have a Granddaughter that is in Kindergarten. I called her the night of the shooting to just say hi, I love you. I'm incredibly emotional and feel very raw and sensitive to all the information I hear. I fight with not wanting to hear any more, but drawn to the images of these Children. I also feel so helpless and frustrated. I am praying for them all, but I feel the need to do something and I don't know what I can do. I have made a decision to be kinder to everyone. I'm really trying to smile and notice people, to say hello and thank you with eye contact. I doubt that it will make much difference, but my heart knows why I'm making this effort and maybe it will help me heal. None of us can even start to fathom why this has happened, but I do know that it has touched people from around the world in all corners. Perhaps it will help with greater acceptance and understanding world wide. It would be a good thing from a terrible tragedy, but a sacrifice that was almost too much to give.
Appreciate your heartfelt comment on the “Sandyhook, CT” blog post, but you entered it under a totally different discussion subject. I'll respond but on the Sandyhook blog post.
Jennifer--on your subject, it seems to me you have an ideal experience base and network that can recommend you and your services. I'd recommend advertising your services with recommendations from willing past/current customers.
Word-of-mouth should bring in interested parties, regardless of industry or disciplines. Since you are a one-woman-band - you'll have to decide what amount of customers you can support.
Hope this helps...
