Our devotion to Charity.
We donate 10% of our Net Profit to a South African Charity “Reach for a dream” as part of our sense of giving back to the community. We help the aged find reliable caregivers that they can trust and rely within their budget and grow the skills of the caregivers and nurses. As we grow, we will contribute and give back more where we can. We feel that what we do in and of itself is upliftment, but, it’s not enough, the world is in need and we must assist where we can. “Become the world that you want to see.”
Now, some people ask, “Really, what is it that you do?”, so let me be candid and give you a peak inside…
The recruiter is the grand master of the parade, making sure everyone stays in their lane and remains calm while looking good doing it. Yeah, I said it—a recruiter must show no fear, exude confidence, be kind but assertive, solve problems, forecast issues, read people’s minds, and—the best of all—remain cool and collected amid a cluster of people problems.
Recruiters are extremely passionate people with type-A personalities. We are enthusiastic about the companies we work for, and we are obsessive about finding the best candidates for the companies we work for.
Here is another thing that may surprise you; are you ready? We want to hire you! We really do.
Seriously, everyone I interview, I genuinely want to see them succeed. Too often, though, either the candidate does something to mess up the opportunity or I realize I don’t have the right opportunity to make them successful. I try to fit a round peg in a round hole, which is what creates the best future for my candidate and for my company. It’s when recruiters try to fit a square peg in a round hole that issues arise both for the company and for the candidates.
I hope now you understand a little better what recruiters accomplish throughout their day and who we are in the scheme of this whole “how to get a job” thing. It’s the important first step in your success for both the company and the candidate. And doing that, everyday, makes me happy. Being of value. I love my job! If you have any ideas or thoughts on functionality that you’d like to see, or integrating with other systems, or bringing on board specific things, let us know, this platform is for you, we are happy to accommodate.
