The Dallas office was declared a winner by our leadership team. Both account managers and recruiters participated in the contest.

“The contest motivated us to really get our game faces on -we wanted to show up big and win big! As a team we sat down and planned out what we could do to win the hot dogs and apple pie party. The recruiters and account managers worked together to target key candidates by matching with them the best clients. ” – Lauren Snapp, Dallas Recruiter

dbOur Tampa office has partnered with Metropolitan Ministries since Veredus, a Hays Company was first started. The leadership team believes in building stronger communities as well as providing excellent service. Providing both leads to success and personal growth.

Some of the Tampa recruiters and account managers recently visited a local organization called Metropolitan Ministries where they volunteered with one and two year olds on an art project, which was creating flower wall.

Rosa Calibuso, Tampa Account Manager explains “It’s the little things that Veredus encourages us to do that makes it such a great company. There’s always talk around the work hard, play hard, but working at Veredus there’s more than that. They give us rewarding opportunities to go along with our achievements.”

TAG | TECHFETCH CAREER EXPO: BRINGING TOGETHER TOP TECH TALENT

Posted on: October 16th, 2015

dbAtlanta team members sponsored the TAG |TechFetch Career Expo.

This premiere event is a career expo that connects the talents of top IT companies in Georgia and highly qualified job seekers in all fields of the technology workforce.

Shauna Corbin, Atlanta Strategic Account Executive, shares her staffing expertise on what to do at large hiring events like the TAG | TechFetch Career Expo. “The greatest piece of advice I can give to recruiters and account managers that attend events like these, is to meet anyone and everyone. Being seen, heard and remembered will help you stand out in the staffing industry.”

There were tech companies from every industry: healthcare, communications, education, government; the list continues.

The expo was designed to help end the skills shortage by connecting tech pros with companies that are hiring. Our recruiters that attended were able to provide staffing expertise to job seekers. They talked skills that employers were hiring for and how they can adjust their interview methods.

The account managers networked with the companies that attended that were looking for top tech talent. We explained to them the specialty staffing services that we provide and how we can help them match up with top tech talent.

We also held a raffle at our table, where one lucky winner, Reggie Stowe, won a FitBit.

Working at Veredus gives you the muscle to be a real expert in staffing. Get in touch to hear about available staffing positions near you.

TOP SALES PROFESSIONAL HIGHLIGHT: DC

Posted on: October 2nd, 2015

Accelerate your earning potential with a career in staffing.he

Heather Eastman, DC Recruiter, is this month’s highlighted top sales professional. Heather has been with us for four years and is one of our leading recruiters in the DC office.

Before becoming an IT recruiter, Heather staffed finance and accounting positions. She made the move to IT when she noticed that there was a demand for experienced IT recruiters. Similar to David Hubbard, Area Vice President located in Texas, she started off in a different industry. She gained experience in sales by working in sub-prime mortgage lending.

The economic status declined while she was working in mortgage lending in 2009. She explains, “I wanted to find a job where I could use my sales/phone experience and feed my competitive nature – staffing ended up being a good match for my personality and drive. I enjoy working with people and helping them to find the right opportunity for them with our current client base.”

The DC office has been growing tremendously in numbers and in success. When Heather started in the DC office there were only three staffing experts. Today, the team is comprised of 10 employees and growing! She has been able to see the business grow from the bottom up, to being one of the leading IT staffing teams in the region.

Heather says, “My goal is to help the team around me be as  successful as possible. I feel great accomplishment from our team success on a daily basis. On top of that, I like to see the hard work result of money in our pockets.”

Heather expressed to me what she likes about working at Veredus, a Hays company. She likes how she is able to work right alongside the management team and how her experience with ours made her feel like part of the family. Even though we are growing, we always strive to give our staffing experts the best company culture an organization can offer.

“You can’t beat the incentives that management has put in place, which include our generous commission structure, award incentive trips, and random perks throughout the year.”

Work with a team that strives to be the best in staffing. Get in touch to hear about our recruiter positions.
