Hiregy, a professional staffing and recruiting firm in Tampa, is looking for talented people to place with their clients. According to Hiregy's president and CEO Bill Fries, the hiring trend will continue through 2011.
"While still cautious, companies in most industries are planning for growth this year, which means an increase in hiring," Fries says. "Since the holidays, we've seen an increase in hiring activity and a renewed energy from both candidates and employers."
Founded in 2004, Hiregy
specializes in administrative, accounting, legal, customer service, HR and IT placements.
"Hiregy has helped companies find top-notch talent in a wide variety of positions from nurses to controllers," Fries says. "Hiregy's client companies' hiring needs change on an hourly basis."
Fries goes on to say that Nicole Palmieri, recruiting director for the company, and her team could be working on 20-40 positions at any given time.
"Currently we have opening for legal administrative assistants, bilingual customer service representatives, office managers, RN case managers, software developers, collections managers and more," Fries says.
Hiregy also offers jobseekers resources on its website, everything from resume writing to interview tips. "If you're looking for a position, and have been for a while, don't let your frustration come across when talking with potential employers," Fries says. "While we know this is difficult, the negative energy will decrease your chances."
Fries also suggests that jobseekers use online tools such as LinkedIn
to network and find work, and not to depend on online job postings alone. "Recruiting and staffing firms are a great way to stand out because they will introduce you personally to hiring managers at a variety of companies," Fries says.
Hiregy's office is at 1111 N. Westshore Blvd., Suite 102, in Tampa
