Fort Wayne Recruiting Firm Growing


Ft. Wayne, IN (PRWEB) November 21, 2012

KB Search Team, a woman-owned recruitment firm located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has hired a new full-time recruiter and relocated to a larger office space at 111 E. Ludwig Road, Suite 104, in Fort Wayne to accommodate the growth they have been experiencing.

KB Search Team conducts searches for both direct and contract placements in a variety of disciplines, including manufacturing, engineering, quality, operations, finance/accounting, healthcare, materials/purchasing, sales and marketing, human resources, and information technology. The recruiters consider themselves generalists with a goal to meet all of their client needs. Their client focus is at the core of everything they do, according to KB Search Team President Kathy Bruns. One unique aspect she pointed out is that each client has one point of contact at the firm. While they may all help each other behind the scenes, each client works directly with that one recruiter.

The firm was established in 2009 in the midst of one of the most challenging economic periods for recruiting firms. With over 100 years combined recruiting experience, the recruiters of KB Search Team found success with their client-centered philosophy and are now averaging between 60 and 90 openings at time, Bruns said.

The growth has been amazing, it really has, said Bruns.

While they have only been together as a firm for three years, the recruiters have all worked with each other at different times over the past 30 years. Bruns and Pat McCombs are both celebrating 30 years of recruiting this year. The team also includes Brenda Wylie-Biggs, Rhonda Dove, Susie Carr, and Gail Mix.

Mix is the newest member of the team. KB Search Team had utilized her skills as a researcher on a contract basis because she is good at finding candidates with very specific skills, Bruns said. She also has 20 years of experience in recruiting, which made her the perfect fit when the firm needed additional recruiting help to handle the their growth.

Bruns credits referrals and long-term relationships for much of the firms recent growth. They have a number of candidates who became hiring managers and suggested KB Search Team to their employers.

Weve also started working with investment firms that refer companies that need talent to take them to the next level, Bruns said. That has been a lot of fun.

One area where Bruns has particularly noticed growth is in their contract staffing placements. The firm sees offering contract staffing as another way that they can meet all of their clients needs.

8 Reasons Your Resume Gets Rejected

Montreal, Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) November 14, 2012

Mr. Kovalenko says that there are eight reasons why IT recruiters could potentially reject your resume:

1. Firstly, when a recruiter looks over a resume – he or she wants to find experience in the field. If a candidate is a PHP Developer with no object oriented development experience and the job is for an object oriented Java Developer – the recruiter is not going to call. Companies are paying recruiters to find an apple to fill an apple job. Companies are not paying recruiters to help candidates transfer their skills from one field to another. If a company is going to pay a recruiter a significant retainer fee, they expect a perfect match.

2. What is candidate’s level or title? If the recruiter is searching for a team lead developer and a candidate’s title is a senior developer, that candidate should not expect an interview with the recruiter. Again, the recruiter is hired to find a team lead developer, not to squeeze a senior developer into a team lead position. On the other hand, if the client wants a senior developer and a candidate is a team lead – that candidate is over-qualified and even if he or she thinks they can do a senior developer’s job the client will not. The first team lead job that comes along might interest that candidate more, causing the recruiter and the company to suspect that you are going to pursue the better opportunity; neither party is willing to risk that.

3. The next area the recruiter is going to look at is the most recent experience. If the client wants a Linux Systems Administrator for a hosting company and a candidate has the experience, but it was over five years ago, recruiter will reject the resume. Any good recruiter can find a candidate with that current familiarity. If candidate was a good Linux Administrator five years ago and have not worked in that area since, their skills might be nowhere near contemporary due to new technologies like virtualization, vmware, etc.

4. Location, location, location. If a client is in Montreal and a candidate is in Toronto – that candidate will most likely not get an interview. Relocating candidates is just too problematic if there is a viable candidate in the client’s location. In addition, most companies are not interested in paying for relocation in a slow economy. Moreover, there is usually the additional challenge of a spouse who must also relocate and find a job. Things can get even more complicated when a candidate needs to move from an English speaking province to a French speaking province on top of that.

5. The next aspect the recruiter will look at is whether the industry experience matches the client’s. Again this is not an economy that allows for deciding whether skills will transfer from one industry to another. If candidate is in medical software development and the job is in financial development – the recruiter will not be calling. Skills might transfer and candidate might become a financial software developer, but it is not up to the recruiter to do that.

6. Education is the next big thing to consider and this one can be an automatic killer. Most recruiters are looking for a Masters or Bachelors in Computer Science or Engineering because they are hired to find the best candidates. No company will be paying a recruiter for a non-degreed or Bachelor of Arts candidate.

7. Job-hoppers: If candidate does not hold any position for an extensive period of time, job seeker should not expect an interview with a recruiter. If candidate had six jobs in the last four years there better be a very good reason for it (for example, maybe candidate worked contracts).

8. Contractors becoming Perm and vice versa. If a candidate is a contractor and recruiter is looking for someone to fill a permanent role – do not expect a call. Most candidates who work contract sometimes dream of becoming permanent employees for stability reasons, as well as to pick up benefits. However, the monetary gain from being a contractor is just too difficult to give up and most contractors who turn perm usually switch back within a year. In these cases, recruiters would have to find a replacement.

And last but not least says Alex Kovalenko: “List your accomplishments and what technologies you have worked with the two – three companies you have worked for. Make sure your resume is two pages long (even if you have worked for over 10 years) and is in traditional and chronological format.”

Concept Searching to Demonstrate Public Sector Expertise at SharePoint Conference 2012


McLean, VA, US and Stevenage, UK (PRWEB UK) 30 October 2012

Concept Searching, a global leader in semantic metadata generation, auto-classification, and taxonomy management software, and developer of the Smart Content Framework, will be demonstrating its experience in solutions for the public sector at the SharePoint Conference 2012, November 12th-15th, in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth 957.

Concept Searching will have public sector clients and partners on hand, to discuss real-life scenarios on best practices and outcomes that can be achieved with Concept Searchings unique technology, built on its award winning conceptClassifier product, delivering solutions in all SharePoint environments from SharePoint 2007 through SharePoint 2013, and Office 365. Public sector clients and partners include:


The US Army – Records Management and Declassification Agency (RMDA) needed access to millions of records for research purposes, to support Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) researchers case research and development. The solution chosen by the RMDA comprised Concept Searchings conceptSearch, conceptClassifier and conceptTaxonomyManager, integrated with Concept Searching partner COMPU-DATA International, LLCs repository management product, DigitalAsset Finder (DAF). Built on top of Concept Searchings enterprise technology and the DAF product, this solution provides increased capacity for accessing large volumes of data, regardless of their network location. Read the RMDA Case Study. COMPU-DATA Internationals CEO, Juan Celaya will be attending the conference and available to answer any questions.

Along with integration partner Triune Group, Concept Searching has deployed conceptSearch at the NASA Safety Center (NSC), which supports the safety and mission assurance requirements of NASA’s portfolio of programs and projects. Triune Group embedded Concept Searchings intelligent search application, conceptSearch, into its KnowledgeNow (KN) collaboration platform. NSC wanted to improve collaboration across the 23,000 strong workforce, improve findability, effectiveness and information sharing in a controlled and secure environment. Read the NASA Safety Center Case Study.

Concept Searchings integration partner Aeturnum brought its development and deployment experience, and Concept Searchings conceptTaxonomyManager and conceptClassifier, to HHS. This government agency deals with protecting the health of Americans, and its portal is designed to improve health outcomes by developing and disseminating evidence-based information to patients and clinicians. The integrated solution builds out taxonomies and tags and classifies content underpinning the portal, to deliver accurate, meaningful search results. Aeturnum will be on hand to answer any questions attendees might have on this and other projects.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is an independent US federal agency charged with determining the probable cause of transportation accidents and promoting transportation safety. Working with Concept Searching integration partner InfoReliance, NTSB chose conceptClassifier for SharePoint to create taxonomies, automatically tag and classify content within its SharePoint 2010 portal, and integrate the solution with FAST Search.

The role of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of products in the agency’s jurisdiction. Its CPSC.gov public facing website is powered by Concept Searchings search and classification suite, and demonstrates the power of Concept Searchings semantic search and classification platform, the value of Concept Searching integration partner InfoReliances consulting experience, and why it is so important to organizations operating in the regulatory, compliance and citizen information space.

The United States Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) runs hospitals and clinics providing care to more than 2.6 million beneficiaries during both peacetime and wartime. With a requirement to effectively deal with a significant amount of information, the AFMS no longer wanted to rely on manual, disparate and resource intensive processes. Concept Searching deployed conceptClassifier and conceptTaxonomyManager to provide information retrieval, effective information management and automatic document classification, delivered in an integrated, scalable and robust solution. Read the AFMS Case Study. A member of the AFMS will be at the conference to answer any questions.

The Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC), a Ministry of Defence (MOD) think-tank in the UK, is using Concept Searchings conceptSearch engine and Web-Labs services and software to manage an archive of military and historical documents, images and recordings. The DCDC is required to provide research and support decisions in operational and strategic military activity. Concept Searchings conceptSearch delivered the unique industry ability to automatically generate semantic metadata through concept extraction, significantly improving search results. Read the DCDC Case Study.
