Recruiter in Las Vegas

Posted on January 31, 2014 at 3:21pm 0 Comments

Good afternoon!  

I have a (former) client who is relocating to Vegas and is interested in finding a recruiter to work with in that area.  

Can anyone recommend a recruiter in that area?  Her background is non-profit, event/program planning, HR and project management.

Any referrals would be great!  She'll be moving out there in about a month or so.

Please either respond publicly, or privately at linda at rftstaffing dot com.

Thank you!
