December 2, 2015  – Veritas Recruiting Group’s Managing Partner David Sprinkle was on Fox 35 Good Day Orlando this morning discussing open floor plan offices.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Bull-pen style open floor plan offices have many challenges, mostly centered around the distracting elements that negatively affect productivity.
  • Open floor plans are especially difficult for creative positions, engineers, and technical professionals like accountants.
  • It’s important to have office rules to reduce distractions…ie. if the head phones are on, do not disturb.

November 4, 2015 – David Sprinkle, Managing Partner with Veritas Recruiting Group, was on Fox 35 Good Day Orlando again, this time to discuss how taking a lower-level position can impact your career.

Don’t mind the coughing fit at the beginning!!!

Couple of key takeaways:

Most people assume that a recruiter’s job is to help them land a job. Although this is true, a true headhunter works for an employer. Their aim is to successfully fill a position for a company. They meet with hundreds of candidates and it is your job to make sure you’re the first person they think of when a position opens up. If you stand out to a recruiter, you will be the one they recommend to companies.
