Recruiter Manufacturing Akron, Ohio


Let’s face it, you as a Hiring Manager within a manufacturing company, are maxed out on time spent on your roles for your current Manufacturing role to properly vet the candidates you need to hire so you can remove things from your over-tasked plate and delegate some tasks to your new hire.

On top of that, there are reports of a skill shortage in many of the roles you need to hire. Since I have 20 years of experience as a Manufacturing recruiter, and more importantly, experience attracting talent to companies in need during an economic downturn (I have worked through 3 separate downturns), I am more than capable of quarterbacking your search and using methods and resources that the typical manufacturing firm does not have access to in order to fill their open manufacturing positions. My Network of Military veterans and West Point graduates gives me the ability to help recruit talent for you to hire Military Veterans.

We can help you locate talented Manufacturing Professionals in Leadership positions in this unprecedented and complex Manufacturing environment.
