With interest rates rising, it seems as though another one might be on the horizon. So, what does that mean for the staffing / recruiting industry? And why might now be a good time to invest in a staffing / recruiting franchise business. While some specific sectors may see a sharp drop in business,…

Technology advancements have improved almost every aspect of our lives, from instant access to information, consumers buying products with ease, and businesses connecting globally. It’s safe to say we live in a technology driven world. In many aspects, technology has improved the process of connecting great talent with companies looking to hire. However, in some cases, technology can be overused, and the art of a good conversation is lost. We talk with so many great candidates who have applied for 100, 200, even 500 different jobs and they have rarely spoken to a human. It’s a daunting and frustrating process…

    I had the privilege of Mike Kunkle assisting in my search for a new career.

    He was excellent, professional and full of information, and very determined on carrying out his mission. Mike always started out our meetings by asking me how I was doing, how was the family, etc. Getting that personal touch made me believe and really feel that he cared about me and my family during this search. I would not trade my dealings with him for anyone else. Mike is very professional, courteous, and down to earth. Keeping me informed of specifics about myself that I would need to improve to enhance my job search. I really appreciate his touch and will definitely keep in contact with him to let him know that he has gained a friend for life.
    Sinerely,
