-What I do and how I got started with Frontline Source Group
I am an aviation executive recruiter with Frontline Source Group. I got started in the recruiting industry about 10 years ago. I worked in a corporate HR department for a large company and we used an outside staffing agency to fill some of our positions. I was intrigued by the process and enjoyed working with the agency recruiters, so I decided to make a career change and become a recruiter myself.
I've been with Frontline Source Group for just over 4 years now. We are a national staffing and direct hire firm specializing in light industrial, administrative, and professional positions. We have offices all over the country, but I work out of our Dallas headquarters.
I love what I do because it's fast-paced and ever-changing. No two days are ever the same and I get to meet new people all the time. It's also very gratifying to help people find jobs that they love and to match businesses with great employees who will help them grow and succeed.
If you're thinking about a career in recruiting, or if you're just curious about how we do what we do, I encourage you to check out our website or give us a call. We'd be happy to chat with you about your career goals and how we might be able to help you achieve them.
-What is a typical day like for me
A typical day for me starts with a cup of coffee and catching up on emails. I then start working on sourcing candidates for aviation clients. This involves using various online databases and tools to find qualified candidates. I also reach out to my network of contacts in the aviation industry to see if they know anyone who might be a good fit for the position. Once I have a pool of candidates, I start conducting phone screens to get a better sense of their experience and qualifications. After that, I present the best candidates to the client and work with them through the rest of the hiring process.
