The event served as an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our clients and to network with hiring managers outside of the office environment.
The Tampa crew and their clients sat in the special Papa John’s Bull Pen where there was food, drinks and talk of hiring plans.
This annual event helps the team to understand companies’ culture so they can better match candidates to jobs. Our relationships with employers and candidates is what power our business and we take pride in fueling their companies with the staff they need to succeed.
Both account managers and recruiters attend so that employers can meet everyone who is part of the end-to-end staffing process. Matching a name with a face helps build stronger relationships too.

The Dallas team recently attended the MTBC’s Annual Golf Tournament. The Metroplex Technology Business Council is the largest tech trade association in Texas and hosted this event to bring together tech companies from all across the state.

136 golfers from telecom and software companies turned out and the Dallas team spent the day speaking with hiring managers and industry leaders to get to know their businesses or find out how they can help support their hiring plans.

“The tournament was a great opportunity to spend time with clients out of the office. Hiring managers were relaxed and talked candidly about their recruiting challenges and growth plans for their teams” – Chris Weixelbaum, Recruiter, Dallas.

The Dallas group gave staffing advice on talent attraction strategies, including tips on interviewing techniques and how to successfully host an employer open house. They even provided a little advice on how to par the hole or a birdie!
