A review shared with the RecruitLoop Success team. We're posting this on behalf of Lindsey at the Women Engineering Expo (womenengineering.ca):
"I have worked with Sharon closely over the past 2.5 years. We went through some serious hiring in Western Canada as a result of a) staffing up and b) replacing folks that left to work for the competition. The race for talent was fierce, especially in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Both of those provinces were seeing tremendous economic growth (resource industry) along with a very scarce supply of talented technical professionals. I tried all of the traditional methods to find candidates (employee referrals, hiring postings, internal postings) ... but the combination of the geography and the scarce supply of available talent came up with nothing of value. I had to rely very heavily on Sharon to pro-actively seek out candidates for me. Sharon's previous experience with hiring engineers was invaluable. She seemed to have a gift to know where to look, which rocks to turn over to find talent."
