Until you have put pen to paper on a new offer, DO NOT resign. In addition to signing your new contract, make sure you have confirmed the new start date and there are no gaps in your pension, social insurance, or employment.

John Byrne

It is exciting to meet and learn from new people, new organizations, and new management.  As we have to compete and win business, we are always asked to come up with creative ideas, out-of-box approaches and problem solving skills.  If we are successful, then we can make our clients and candidates equally happy; creating a win-win situation which personally give me great incentive to work harder and better.  Artificial Intelligence cannot replace the human touch in businesses like executive recruitment.  It gives me great pleasure to help people, both hiring managers and candidates.
