Making a Lateral Career Move

Making a Lateral Career Move

Submitted by: Kate Robertson, Corporate Recruiting Manager I first joined the TMX Finance® Family of Companies team in April of 2012. When I began to look for a career outside of the education world, I knew that I wanted to be in a competitive, production-based environment. So I first joined the team as a Field Recruiter, where I recruited for Customer Service Representatives, Store Managers, and General Managers for our stores. As time progressed with the Company, so did my career. I began to take on new roles, ones that allowed me to manage a team as well as a …

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 …
