I am seeking a position in Human Resources/ Recruiting. I have worked as a Recruiter, where I staffed for temporary administrative positions with in a designated territory, After a number of months i was selected to start the direct hire division in my designated territory, staffing for finance and accounting professionals. I have proven my ability of staffing for both contract and direct hire positions for a vast variety of job openings. While working as a recruiter, I had undergone training for both divisions (temp and perm) which focused on servicing not only the client but also the candidate. Ensuring the proper advisement for the clients business and the candidates career. I will be able to conduct a recruiting process that will be a benefit for both the potential candidate and the organization

I earned my BA in Labor Studies from Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations. I have completed course work on the fallowing subjects: Human Resource Issues, Employment Law, American Labor Law, Collective Bargaining, O S H A, Work Education Connection, Development of the Labor Market, Working Women in American Society, Economics of the Employment Relationship, and Diversity in the Workplace, while maintaining a grade point average of 3.1. My work experience along with my education benefit my ability to adapt well in an office environment which caters a service for a variety of industries.

I look forward to hearing about any opportunities in the Chicago area.

Default Global companies?

The trouble with all of Illinois is it is economically depressed. I do not know who is hiring but I think your skills would be very useful in an international company. Two companies come to mind. Sara Lee in Chicago. The corporate office may be in Wisconsin. Caterpillar, Inc., headquartered in Peoria, IL. OSHA and labor should fit well in either company as both have divisions stateside and abroad. Also, I believe it is the Mariott Hotels that is renovating and expanding a 12M project in Peoria. They too are global.

Despite the broad brush Peoria is painted with, it is a business, medical, financial and technical center. OSF manages several hospitals in Illinois and is affiliated locally with Children's Hospital of Illinois and St. Jude's. They frequently hire, Large operations with many employees do hire recruiters despite economic conditions.

Peoria has many attributes including a diverse culture and employment opportunities that could conceivably include national and/or international travel. With 12M people in Chicago, finding employment may not be so easy.

Goog luck.
