I want to thank Search Leaders for giving me this opportunity to succeed as a Staffing Specialist.

Over the past year or so working with Search Leaders, not only have I been using my current skill set as a recruiter, but I have also gained more tools to grow in this business. I have received excellent training with a strong attention to growing my skills as a recruiter, and am now beginning to take on the role of Account Manager for several of our clients. I feel fortunate working with such a dedicated crew, and yea, we like to have fun too! Because we all work from home, whenever we do get together in person it is for a social event like going to a Twins’ game or having lunch and playing mini-golf. So, while we are very serious about our work in this market, we also enjoy each others’ company with fun, team-building outings. If you’re looking to grow your career as a recruiter, than Search Leaders is the place to be! 

Search Leaders has provided me with a great working environment and platform to learn the staffing industry. It feels like Search Leaders really cares about their employees and the people they work with.
