It's a coming of age tale….

About

Apparently this is the part of my blogging experience where I’m supposed to write things about myself for everyone to know.  Does anyone ever really know what to say in these things?  I guess I would have to say that professionally I am a ‘Technical Recruitment Specialist’ for Procom in Ottawa.  I currently am the lead source of recruitment in the office so I’m responisble for large portion of the recruitment that takes place for Procom in Ottawa.  I am experienced with technical and behavioural assessment for both active and passive candidates as well as sourcing strategies.  In terms of a professional background, I worked for Cognos from 2004 to 2007 while attending University.  Upon graduating from Carleton University in 2007 I quickly began working for Procom in May 2007 and have been here ever since.

Personally – I am an active guy who spends the majority of his free time as an on-ice hockey official.  I pretty much enjoy most sports and enjoy going to the gym once I’ve found the motivation to get there.  I think I wrote this thing in the wrong order, so I wrote a fair bit about myself in my first posting.  To avoid duplicaton I’m going to stop writing more about myself…

As I mentioned in my first post, I hope that this blog will grow and become useful for some people to read other then my friends who found it on facebook and were bored so they opted to check it out.  I simply wanted something to occupy some of my free time (I have this thing about having nothing to do – it really bothers me) and I want to experiment and see if the internet is as powerful as I think it can be.  I intend to write about the labour market, recruitment, finding a job and marketing yourself from the eyes of a recruiter.  I did mention in my first posting that I am by no means an expert on the subject and don’t pretend to be.  Anything written here is merely an opinion (so take it as such).  A lot of the thoughts that run through my mind and may find there way on here are most likely a combination of conversations I’ve had with past and present colleagues or ones I’ve had with candidates. 

I appreciate you taking the time to read through some of the material on my blog.  If you have any questions or comments I would welcome them, so please don’t be shy….

As the tag line of this page states: It’s a coming of age tale… so come along for the ride
