Rick has over 7 years of recruiting experience. I love recruiting because it gives me the ability to have such a positive impact on someone’s professional career by presenting them with opportunities they may not have found on their own. Wether it’s your first placement or your 100th that feeling when everything works out never gets old and the chase keeps me coming back for more every single day!
