This month I am celebrating 35 years of working in the recruiting industry. It has been an honor and privilege to work with you and assist you throughout your career change process, and I look forward to many more years together; I am not retiring anytime soon! J. Truly without YOU, I would not be in business. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your career change over the years.

I am not the only one doing some recruiting. Our champion Cubbies’ pitchers and catchers have reported to camp, which means spring training games start this weekend.  Major league Baseball is right around the corner! I am looking forward to seeing the new guys on the 2016 World Champ Team. The sports excitement doesn’t end there.  The Hawks are also having a promising season.  I am counting down the games until the playoffs start, because they WILL be going all the way!

In news of some smaller athletes, my daughter Cassi has been raking in trophies throughout her ragatta rowing season.  Plus, Lincoln won a 2nd place trophy during his Pinewood Derby.  Bob, a leader of Cub Scout pack 382, organized the entire event for the group.  During the week days, Bob may be in our Wheaton office as a recruiting machine, but on most nights and weekends, he is hard at work leading Scouts!

An interesting turn of events: our admin, Amy, has left her hair the same color for more than a month! It is an unusual, gray-ish light purple, which I actually like, but that is not as unusual as her not changing it.  She’s had red, purple, hot pink, light pink, turqoise, and blue hair (with nails to compliment). Let’s see how long this lasts…I bet she will change it by June. She and our other admin, Tiffani (who also has fun nails), are going on vacation to Portland, Oregon. The trick for Tiffani before that trip will be finding a substitute in her other job as a dog-walker.

But before we start talking too much about spring break and summer vacation, let’s help you find the opportunity that will PAY for those breaks!  We have over 40 hot jobs right now, including 3 different Java related roles. Click here to check them out: Java Roles.  We also have careers listed like an Infrastructure Manager ,an Application Engineer – Finance Integration, a Systems Analyst – Forecast/Budgeting and some careers just north of the border (Illinois/Wisconsin, that is), an IT Program Manager and a Network Architect.

If you are contemplating the IT marketplace and your timing of making a change is right now or soon, give me a call or email me and let’s discuss your career options and assess opportunities.   Be sure to check out our complete list of open positions on our website.  The flip side of that coin would be, that if you are in need of adding to your staff, please do give me a call, we would be happy to assist you. There have been many instances in my 35 years that I placed a candidate, and then helped them staff their team several years down the line. J
