I run a technology staffing company called Solstice Consulting Group (www.scg360.com ) and a staffing platform called Shortro (www.shortro.com ). I authored a book entitled “Why Technology Recruiting is Broken and What to do About it” ( http://a.co/0Mn5360 ). I have been a guest on the IT in the D podcast (over 200,000 listens per episode), as well as the Internet Adviser show on WJR Detroit radio.
I have acted as a consultant to CEOs of Fortune 100 companies and advised people on how to further their careers. The topic I discuss on podcasts is: “How to use technology in a practical way to be MORE human when hiring people, or getting hired” In interviews I discuss how hiring managers can more effectively source talent, and what job seekers, or those looking for career changes, can do to find more fulfilling jobs.
This is something I hope will be very useful for both companies and job-seekers, and is based on tested, reliable tactics. My goal in doing podcast appearances is not book sales, but rather to further establish my expertise in the field, and:
• Provide valuable, immediately useful strategies and tactics for finding a better fit faster when hiring people
• Provide valuable, immediately useful strategies and tactics for people changing jobs or careers
• Connect with a portion of the audience with whom my message resonates
