Cindy Price is a Technical Recruiter working with our Bedford, TX office. She’s been with JSG for 22 years. We had the opportunity to sit down with Cindy and learn a little bit more about her career at JSG. Here’s what she had to say.
Tell us a little bit about your career in the Staffing & Recruiting Industry?
In 1992, I started working for Design Support Services where I worked as an admin. Five years later, JSG acquired the company. I was brought to our headquarters, which was in Burr Ridge at the time, and was able to meet the whole JSG team and was given the opportunity to stay on as an administrator. I was responsible for answering the phone, filing, and inputting resumes (by hand) into the database.
Currently, I am working from home for our office in Bedford, TX office where I am still responsible for admin duties and help with payroll during the first half of the week. However, from Wednesday through Friday, I am full-on recruiting. I guess you can say I’m a jack of all trades!
You’ve been with JSG for 22 years. How have you seen the industry as well as the company change over your career?
Technology has probably been the single largest change in the Staffing & Recruiting industry. When I first started working in the industry, everything was done by hand and was in hard files. Resumes were filed into filing cabinets an everything was faxed directly to hiring managers. With the implementation of technology, this industry has become completely digital. Jobs are advertised on social media, we use online portals to submit candidates and communicate with human resources. The end goal is the same, but now we have so many different means to find and source candidates.
What type of jobs does your team specialize in? What do you like about sourcing in these fields?
At the Cameron office, we specialize in engineering roles, such as mechanical, software, stress, and electrical engineering. JSG is one of the largest engineering staffing firms in the U.S. and our office definitely plays a big role in that.
What I love about recruiting is reaching out and talking to candidates. I truly enjoy building relationships with my candidates and contractors. This job is honestly just so rewarding! Every day, I have the opportunity to help candidates find the next step in their careers. I also have the privilege to help my clients find exactly what they’re looking for by presenting the good, quality candidates they’re been searching for. It makes my day when I hear how grateful a candidate of mine is for helping them find their next career.
What are you hoping to accomplish in 2019?
Every year you want to strive to do better. My personal goal is to increase my production and see growth this year. Rich Geil and my team in Bedford, TX are amazing. They are so supportive and are always there for me to help me achieve my goals. I know with their support, I will be able to have a breakthrough year!
