Why I Focus on Recruiting Women in Leadership for the TMX Finance® Family

Why I Focus on Recruiting Women in Leadership for the TMX Finance® Family

Written by Shannon Beasley, Director of Corporate Recruiting When people ask me how I got into Recruiting, I have to tell them it was really a stroke of luck. I had just moved to Tampa, FL and I NEEDED A JOB! I was hired by a small firm to do research and to assist the Recruiting Team, and before the end of my first year I found myself working as a full-blown recruiter, “smiling and dialing” as we say in the business, and was enjoying every minute! After relocating back to the Savannah area, I was surprised to learn of …

Video Resumes & Cover Letters: The Way of the Future, or Just a Fad?

Video Resumes & Cover Letters: The Way of the Future, or Just a Fad?

Submitted by: Elizabeth Lightfoot, Senior Recruiter An email from a colleague came through the other day sharing the story of a girl’s new approach on a cover letter – she had made a music video! She had a talking intro, then went straight into playing the piano and singing an Adele-style song (though not quite as dramatic). To be honest, at first it sounded as though she was over-compensating, and a bit immature, until I actually listened to the lyrics. This girl uses a song to explain her assets in detail, clearly communicate her strengths, and provide her objective. She’s …

Keys to a Successful Video Interview

Keys to a Successful Video Interview

Submitted by: Heather Sueirro, Recruiting Manager Advances in technology have made it easier for you to find and apply for your dream job, but fitting an interview into your already busy schedule can be difficult. One technology advancement that helps with this issue is the video interview platform. Major employers are using this in addition to, or as an alternative to, the traditional interview because it widens their candidate pool and helps to fill their positions faster.
