The ARC Staffing Team
After spending the first 8 working
years of my life in a family business, I then obtained positions with 12
different companies in various positions such as Warehouse Manager, Accountant,
Business Manager, Controller, Outside Sales Rep, and Director of Purchasing.
This is not for you, ALAN!
I am uniquely qualified to be
Finally, one day I had the chance
to become a Recruiter and it hit me square between the eyes: I had become
an expert in choosing the wrong career! So, what better way of
converting what I learned during those 7 years than to become a recruiter!
I spent 3 years with two large executive
recruiting firms in New York City before I made the Great Leap Forward
to establish my own firm in September 1988.
Creating a new product in recruiting
opened new vistas for both clients and myself.
The dot.com collapse and 9/11 hit
my company hard. I had to re-invent myself. I offered my clients
a wonderful way to accomplish the expensive and tedious job of filling
open job slots known in recruitment
parlance as research. My clients were now able to hire several
candidates for less than the going price of hiring one! They
were also able to access valuable research concerning competitors.
My clients know that they can
trust me and count on me to get the job done.
As a recruiter, my personality is
one that always asks: "how can I best serve you?" My clients know
that they can rely on me to advise them if a candidate isn't the right
fit: I will suggest re-vamping job specifications, compensation levels,
changing or combining responsibilities --- anything to affect more efficiency
in People/ Talent resources. I am afforded this type of relationship
with my clients because I have worked hard to earn their trust.
My Signature Strengths
I am skilled at zeroing in and identifying
peoples' strengths, concerns, and their ability to fit a company culture.
The key is that clients know that I'm there to serve them with a smile.

I'm a strong communicator. When
I make phone presentations to candidates, they have a broad, positive and
truthful picture of what their careers could look like. If they decide
to pursue these opportunities, the possibilities for advancement will be
I don't waste time. I'm
appreciated as being a very forthright, honest recruiter.
I know how to create Win-Win situations:
I try to put myself in the place of each party > I recruit for companies
for whom I would work; and I try to recruit candidates whom I myself would
hire. That means that every interview is targeted for success.
It's no wonder that the most common feedback I receive from clients is
that my candidates were thoroughly prepared.
I have knowledge of many industries:
manufacturing, medical, pharmaceutical, defense electronics, security software;
and a strong functional understanding of sales, marketing, product development,
finance, HR, organizational development & training, and logistics for
both small and large businesses.
My personal interests are widespread:

still play Hawaiian slide guitar for country music, folk, blues, Chassidic/Klezmer
