Last week Heather Huggins was able to find Franklin the job he had been waiting for to get his career back on track!
Heather, who works on our Mobile and Embedded Software team at Jobspring Silicon Valley, starting working with Franklin back in August. The opportunity that she had in mind for him at the time didn't quite work out and Franklin took a contract opportunity on the East Coast. Franklin soon realized that the contract role wasn't something he was passionate about and decided to start his job search again two months later.
He reached out to Heather to see if she had any opportunities that would be more beneficial to his career. Heather told him about an opportunity with a company she was working with in the 3D graphics medical device space that matched perfectly with Franklin's engineering skill set!
Franklin spoke with the company over the phone and they wanted to proceed with an onsite interview. Franklin, Heather, and the manager were working nonstop to find Franklin a flight to California. Once the flight was found, Franklin flew out the next day, had the interview, and flew back East the day after. A week after that onsite interview, the company offered him the position!
Franklin was very relieved to be moving back to California for a full time opportunity to do exactly the type of work he had been wanting to do!
Congratulations Franklin! We're so glad Heather was able to find you a great job!
That owl on Heather's shoulder is our new affectionately named "Placement Owl". We were able to strategically steal the owl in a heated game of White Elephant during our holiday party. He will now signify each job seeker we place at a company by residing on the recruiters desk. Heather got to be the first to break in our Placement Owl.

Just two weeks ago our recruiter Sam, from our Infrastructure team, met with a talented job seeker named Dave. Dave he was a Senior Systems Engineer who was looking to change gears and become a Senior Network Engineer.
Our client, a leader in electronic payment processing, was looking for a Cisco engineer who would make a great fit to the company’s culture and environment. Dave is a great guy and has an awesome personality, so we couldn't wait to introduce him to our client.
After just 2 interviews, Mike felt that Dave would be just the guy for their Sr. Network Engineer position, and he starts his new job in the coming weeks!
It was a pleasure to help Dave find his new job with a great company, congrats Dave!

Here at Jobspring Boston we'd like to take a minute to recognize one of our all-star Recruiters.
Meet Shane Tomlinson, the Practice Manager of our office's Network Infrastructure Team. On a daily basis Shane helps network administrators and engineers find their perfect new job and continually goes above a beyond to stay connected with Boston's Tech Community.
Soon after he began working here Shane introduced our office to the Boston Security Meet-Up, a group of technology security enthusiasts who use our office space every six weeks to hold riveting security based presentations. Shane also created a LinkedIn group called Boston Infrastructure as a place for technology professionals to discuss articles, job opportunities, and technology in general.
Shane graduated from University of New Hampshire in 2009 and joined our team two months after graduation. He has always had an affinity for helping people. During college he worked part-time as a Rehabilitation Aide at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, so it's no surprise now that his favorite part of being a recruiter is "Changing people's lives by finding them jobs they love."
When Shane isn't here helping job-seekers or participating in a Security Meet-Up he can usually be found enjoying his huge DVD collection, watching football, hanging out in Boston Common with friends or playing fantasy sports. Despite his all-star Recruiter status he really is normal guy just like the rest of us!

'Tis the Season for giving and we just wrapped up (pun intended) the Toy Drive at our Jobspring San Francisco office.
We had a bin to collect toys in our Lobby for half of December and it was almost completely full! It was picked up by 2 very nice Volunteers the other day, and we hope that all the donations can make the Holiday Season more enjoyable for some boys and girls.
Two of our Jobspring Managers are holding up the toys that they donated!
Here are the nice Volunteers who stopped by to pick up the Toy Drive Bin.
Watch the video from SF Firefighter's Toy Program HERE. Thank you to everyone who donated Toys and we hope that you have a wonderful Holiday Season.
For more information, go to the SF Firefighter's Toy Program Website or Call 415-777-0440.
"The San Francisco Firefighters Toy Program believes that no child should be without a toy during the holiday season. In time of loss due to fire, our firefighters are the ones who see first-hand, the devastation when a child is left without a favorite toy. Donations of toys are graciously accepted throughout the year at any San Francisco firehouse."
