You know you're a recruiter when...

when in regular typing of correspondences or descriptions, etc. you start using all CAPS for any of the Boolean operators!

Results-Oriented, Motivated!

I am a skilled university-trained working professional, with a massive results-oriented approach to my day. 

I have a variety of interests and a unique recruiting exposure to Aviation/ Aerospace, Engineering, IT, College, and Sales.

I enjoy problem solving, brainstorming outloud, technical conversations, and crunching numbers.

I am an entrepreneur-minded person, great to work individually or on a motivated conversant team. 

I am comfortable in both a virtual or office atmosphere.

Interests may include:

  • Worldwide Recruitment (Aviation/ Aerospace, Engineering, College, IT, Green), 
  • Regionally based business development, 
  • Providing career assistance to entry level folks, 
  • Technical or contract or proposal writing, 
  • Establishing green operations or greener homes, 
  • Real Estate research.

Mythbusting - fact versus fiction on winter energy saving.

MYTH: Furnace filters work no matter how long they're in use.

REALITY: Replacing or cleaning old filters can reduce dust and save 5% in heating costs.

MYTH:Keeping drapes and blinds closed keeps in heat.

REALITY: Opening up drapes and blinds on windows with a southern exposure lets the sun in, heating your home for free.

MYTH: Fireplaces are great sources of warmth in the winter.

REALITY: Fireplaces pull heated air out of the house so use it sparingly and be sure the damper is closed when it’s not in use.

MYTH: Humidifiers add moisture to the air, making it feel cold.

REALITY: Moister air feels warmer, so by adding a humidifier, you can set your thermostat lower to help you save money.

MYTH: Only experts can tell if your doors have air leaks.

REALITY: Place a piece of paper between the door and frame and shut the door - if you can pull the paper out without tearing it, you should weather-strip around the door.
