I played cards a couple of weeks ago when in Atlanta and it dawned on me that I don’t pay enough attention to the other player’s professions.  In addition to possibly providing me some additional insight into my adversaries at the table, I always seem to overlook the possibility of networking and assisting those folks.  So why not use my blog to assist me in my professional life.  So for any of those who knew I was a recruiter but didn’t know (or care) to know for what disciplines…here goes.

I recruit mostly for Fortune 500/1000 companies mostly in Atlanta – Coke, Home Depot, Old Castle, Deloitte, Cox, Infor, Global Payments, Georgia Pacific, Cousins Properties,…but you name’em I’ve probabably worked with them in the past.

Whom do I recruit – mostly mid level professionals beginning to mid-stages of their careers – 2-5, 5-8, 8-15 years of experience, comps in the $45-100K range.  Staff, Seniors and Managers.  Occassionally Director level.

Disciplines covered – accounting, finance, tax, audit, treasury, both permanent and contractors.

So there you have it.  I’ve had good success from obtaining referrals over the last 6-8 months and typically ‘take care of those’ that watch out for me.  So thanks for the referrals and for any of those looking for a good recruiter….well, you know….

My web site is usually updated with current opportunities www.atlantasearchgroup.com and I do the occassional out of town relocation too – ie. Burger King (Miami) for example but mostly in the southeast for anyone looking to relocate. (1095/125).

Likely in the next week, barring any large issues, I’ll be incorporating a new company and starting anew.  I’ll be doing the same thing I’ve been doing now for the last seven years, professional recruiting and consulting work for Fortune 500, Fortune 1000 companies.  I’ll still retain some ownership in my old Firm so of course I’ll hope they will succeed.  But this will be a fresh start for me and I’ll be able to focus 100% on my clients albeit from afar.  But I have one major snafu right now…

…I need a name.  If anyone has ideas, please email me directly (or post here), but I’ve twisted my mind over the last 48-72 hours struggling to find something that does not include the words project, hire, or talent for obvious reasons.  Thoughts?

Buzz words I’ve come up with include – source, preferred, first, solution, pro, partner, group, persona, recruiting, kudos, search, contract, premiere.  The catch, the URL or similar must be available.  Anyone? Anyone?
