As a previous in-house Corporate Recruiting Manager in the food and beverage industry, I understand the time, energy and resources it takes to find top notch talent, especially in an industry that is as competitive as the hospitality and restaurant industry. I have seen first-hand the strain an open position can put on a hiring manager and the organization as a whole. Your time is invaluable and you have multiple responsibilities that don’t always allow you to dedicate the necessary time to handle the intricacies of a job search from start to finish.
As a Regional Recruiting Manager with Patrice & Associates, I have the resources, including a growing network of active and passive candidates that will allow me to seek out those hard-to-find candidates for you. I start by partnering with the hiring manager to gain an in-depth understanding of the ideal candidate, the position requirements, and the overall organizational needs. Utilizing my network and advertising capabilities, I then narrow down the candidate pool for you so you are only presented with the highest-qualified talent to select from. The most difficult decision you should have to make during this process is “Which candidate should I turn away?”, as you should only have the best-of-the-best to choose from.
As a candidate, I understand how time-consuming and challenging it can be to search for another job. This is why a lot of people remain content with their current employment situation, even though they may wonder if there are better opportunities out there. It doesn’t have to be as difficult as it may seem, especially when you have an advocate by your side throughout the process. I get to know the candidates I work with to ensure I have a thorough understanding of your goals and aspirations to make certain we find the best fit for you. Before you are presented to a company for consideration, I will assist you with fine-tuning your resume so it provides an accurate depiction of your background and your skills will stand out to a potential employer. Once you move on to the interview process, I will provide you with extensive information about the company and the position opening, as well as prepare you for the interview with potential questions that a prospective employer may ask. I will be there to walk you through every step of the process and to celebrate with you when you start your new job.
I am in the recruiting profession because I enjoy meeting and working with great people and I strive to develop long-term relationships with my clients and candidates. As we work together through this process, my goal is to gain your trust so you know that I will always be a resource to you and your organization long after a placement has been made.
