Jamie Tran is a Regional Account Manager at JSG. She works out of our Bedford, TX office and has nearly 15 years of experience in the Staffing & Recruiting industry. We sat down with Jamie for a few minutes to get to know her a little better.
You’ve been with JSG for almost 10 years. Tell us a little about your time with the company.
I’ve been in the Staffing and Recruiting industry since 2005. In 2009, I started working for JSG as a Sr. Technical Recruiter. Several years later, I transitioned into my current position as a Regional Account Manager in 2013.
The transition was a little daunting at first, but I’ve grown to love my role here at JSG. I genuinely enjoy interacting with our clients and love fostering our relationships with them. Our office’s specialty is Aerospace; however, we service many different industries.
You have a ton of experience in the Staffing & Recruiting industry. How has the industry changed over the years and what are your thoughts on the tight market we are currently seeing?
In the world of recruiting, we currently have more resources than we have ever had before. New job boards and social media has really made a huge impact on our recruiting efforts over the years. We have more avenues to reach out to candidates which makes it easier to find that “purple squirrel.”
The candidate-driven market we are currently in forces us to be more creative with our recruiting methods. It has also helped us place an emphasis on retention of our current contractors and clients. Our office motto is “smile and dial.” We have to build great relationships with our clients and candidates and have strong, personal communication with them.
What are the goals for you and your team this year?
Every year, we strive to perform better. Our team continuously works to provide exceptional customer service to both our clients and our candidates. We want our candidates to be part of the JSG family for the long-term and continue to help them find their next assignment or position.
