Dallas, Texas, is one of the top five staffing markets in the US and the largest economic contributor to The Metroplex. Recognized as having the largest corporate headquarters concentration in the US, with more than 10,000 companies, this area has a broad diversity of industries, including financial services, IT, life sciences, telecommunications, transportation and manufacturing.

In addition, the labor market continues to expand while the city has a very low unemployment rate. It is no surprise that Dallas will become a home for several large companies in the coming months including the likes of Toyota, USAA, FedEx, Liberty Mutual, and State Farm, resulting in thousands of jobs being created and an increase in recruitment demand for the Dallas office.

Since it opened in 2012, the office has seen significant growth. Initially operating with Construction & Property and IT, we recently started the Accounting & Finance division. We have had a great deal of success over the past few months.

And the reason for our success is our dedicated team, who made this office into a collaborative environment with a great culture of cross-selling and sharing client leads. As a result, multiple recruiters are billing the most they have in their careers. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Dallas team”, says David Hubbard, Area Vice President. We’re looking to add 2 recruiters to the team.  We have the chance to build on a great base of clients, and continue to deliver a high level of service to our clients. The recruiters play such a critical role in the overall success of the business.  There is a tremendous amount of opportunity for recruiters to step in and make placements quickly, and have a significant impact.

Aside from the amazing career growth opportunities that Dallas has, the city also offers a lot of entertainment and culture. Held in Dallas, the State Fair of Texas is the most notable event in the state, bringing people together to celebrate the Lone Star culture. And you won’t want to miss the New Year’s Eve Celebration in AT&T Plaza, which attracts people from across the country.

IMG_1472The entertainment hub of Florida, home to Walt Disney World, Seaworld, and Universal Studios; Orlando, Florida is also home to one of 3 Florida based offices. With a projected economic growth above the national average for the next 5 years, it is no surprise that Orlando is turning into a hot spot for new construction. With the market heating up, hiring needs are steadily growing making Orlando a prime spot for recruitment consultants.

The local employment market in Orlando is improving every day spearheaded by the increased investment into construction projects including the $1.8 billion Orlando airport expansion, a 500 acre tech campus, and several residential projects. The new developments have led to more jobs across other industries including IT, accounting and finance, office support, and other operations roles.

As a preferred supplier in construction for the Orlando area, the team has been looking to expand to keep up with the growing demand.  “The Orlando team has such a sense of community” says Senior Manager, Shenlee Walker “It’s a very close knit supportive team, that works hard and also plays hard.” The team has seen some excellent results recently with no end in sight. Shenlee describes the team as a “hard working team that have put up some awesome results to celebrate.”

As a national hub for events, home to large stadiums and convention centers, not a day goes by where there is not a major event, conference, or concert. Home to the Orlando Magic (NBA), and Orlando City Soccer Club (MLS), there are always sporting events to go to. If sports are not your thing, Orlando is only 45 minutes to amazing beaches with the Gulf of Mexico to the west, and the Atlantic ocean to the east. The city nick named “the theme park capital of the world” has something for everyone to do. There is never a dull moment in Orlando!

Join a team that works together to produce amazing results while always mixing in some fun.

It is with heavy hearts we celebrate the life of Patrick McNeil, a long-time independent consultant who worked with Veredus, a Hays company.

Pat was a Veredus consultant for the last five years, and had worked with Veredus on previous assignments prior to that.

Pat’s Co-workers at the client site loved him for his wacky socks, along with shirts and ties as colorful as his personality! They considered him family.

Said CEO Dan Rodriguez – “Pat was one of the first consultants I assisted when I got in the business.  We worked together a number of times through the years, and we always knew Pat would do a great job.  Pat made a positive impression on every client through his competence, integrity, and hard work.  We at Veredus were very fortunate to have Pat work with us for the last 5 years.  He will truly be missed.”
