Hi! Welcome to my blog! See above this text, I am the lucky guy in that picture. My name is Ben White and I have been recruiting for the last six years of my life. If on average I spent 2080 hours (that’s what 40 hours a week for a year adds up to) a year recruiting (I am sure it was much more than that), then I would have been working in recruiting for 12,480 hours. According to Malcolm Gladwell that makes me an expert. What is unique about me is that I have done recruitment the entire six years but I have done so in several different capacities, giving me a very unique perspective that I am able share with my readers.
I have worked as a Head Hunter (in my book I explain what this is) for a small single office and a Fortune 500 company which is considered the preeminent leader in staffing. I have also functioned as a Corporate Recruiter for a different Fortune 500 company. Currently I am working as a Talent Acquisition Consultant for Titus Talent Solutions. We work for a variety of clients in a variety of industries finding passive talent and partnering to help companies find great culture matches. Unlike your standard 3rd party agencies (which I have done in the past) we don’t get big expensive bonuses when we make a fill and we can save our clients 75% on traditional agency fee’s. If you want to find out more feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can explain our unique, proven model.
Ultimately what it boils down to is that I know recruiting and I know it really well. I have set on every side of the desk imaginable and I know how and why it functions the way it does. I know why recruiters say things, why they say the things they do when they do and I know about the hiring process. The goal of my blog and my book is to give me readers every advantage when it comes to getting hired. Part of the reason I like being in recruitment is I like to be able to impact people’s lives, that is a very powerful thing. MY hope if that through my book and my blog I able to impact more people and help them navigate what can be a difficult and stressful process.
