4 Steps to Igniting Your Career Love

4 Steps to Igniting Your Career Love

Submitted By: Jennifer Jeffers, Recruiting Manager February is the month of love. A time where we show gratitude and extra attention to our loved ones, our spouses, and our families. It can also be a great time to show your career some love, too! Our careers can be considered a huge part of how we define ourselves. We love to show our gratitude to others, but it’s important we celebrate our careers, as well! Just over a year ago, I started my career with TMX Finance® Family of Companies. It was a scary transition because I thought I truly loved …

New Year New Career

New Year New Career

Submitted By: Matt Moisant, Senior Recruiter With 2018 disappearing in the rear view, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to make 2019 all the things that 2018 wasn’t. Everyone has different goals they are reaching for during the year, but at the end of 2018 I found myself in a boat I think a lot of people have been in before. Working holiday schedules as well as weekends for many years had me aiming my efforts toward finding a position in which I could spend more time with my family. I knew I wanted a better balance between my work …

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.

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 …

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 …
