As graduation time is quickly approaching, I am reminded of my time recruiting and running a desk in our Temp Division here at Atrium. Many of the candidates I met were recent college grads with artistic leanings and aspirations… painters, comedians, designers, and of course…the actors. Like most creative professionals paving their way in the world, they faced the difficult quandary of how to pay the bills while still finding the time to dedicate to their passions.
Having lived this dilemma myself, I was happy to help. By offering them temporary positions to make ends meet, I became an integral part in helping them pursue their dreams. In addition to helping them pay their rent, I served as a cheerleader when they landed a part in a show…and yes, on occasion, I even attended a performance or two. This to me is really the cornerstone of why I got into the business of recruiting in the first place, the relationships we build with our Associates here at Atrium go beyond just filling an open job. As you navigate the road ahead of you, the road soon to become known as your professional career, I hope you’ll consider reaching out to an Atrium recruiter and that you’ll build a relationship. Brendan Bradley, I hope you’re happy in LA. I’m looking for your name when the credits roll!
