To Personalize The Process

When I began my career in executive search and then later working in temporary staffing, I was able to build strong relationships with clients to gain a deeper understanding of their working style and culture. This helped tremendously in finding talent that was the best fit for them, and making sure our candidates were happy at the organizations where they were placed. It occurred to me that this personalized approach to staffing was really missing from the industry. And, when I was just 26 years old, I was given an opportunity to change all that. Three colleagues and I decided to start our own staffing and recruiting business: KNF&T Staffing Resources. I realized this was my chance to bring that personalized approach to the job search process. That was in 1983. Today, our style of really listening to the needs of clients and candidates has helped to make us an award winning business where I am proud to call myself the CEO.
