      Director, Contract Search Services

      Movement started out as a search firm that did only direct-hire placements. Our strategy was to build out that business and then find a leader with a proven track-record of success in contract staffing who can do it all—recruit, build teams, manage clients, and lead the practice through torrid growth. Well, we found our guy; his name is Ryan LaForge. Ryan is everything you could ask for in a person. He is as dependable, loyal, and as trustworthy as they come. His ability to get granular with every last detail of a placement coupled with the understanding and vision of the big picture for the practice in the future is beyond impressive. Ryan’s education and experience as an engineer gives him instant credibility with his clients and candidates that allows for him to deliver spot on technical staffing solutions every time.

Amazing consultative sales skills, extremely hard-working, diligent and as polished and professional as you can be. There is no question that Kyle is a true pro.

      So, here’s the deal. Carrie has been a Kindergarten teacher for the past 20 years; she comes knocking on Movement’s door and tells us that she’s looking for a new challenge in her life and thinks she wants to be a Headhunter. Initially, we told her it must be some kind of mid-life crisis thing and we sent her on her way. Then she kept coming back to us over and over again. We finally agreed to sit down and interview with her. Movement hired her on the spot. Carrie is amazing; her energy and enthusiasm for this business is off the charts. She consumes information, executes her plan, and develops relationships with clients and candidates like she has been doing this for 20 years. Headhunting is Carrie’s new calling and she is very, very good at it. Perhaps one of the best hires Movement has made in recent memory.

      Although Movement makes a living by convincing candidates to consider new opportunities with our clients we love people whose resumes reflect a stable track record of success without a lot of job changes throughout their career. When we recruited Jaclyn to come here, she had never made a job change and was rising star with a highly-regarded, national retail chain ever since she graduated from college over 8 years ago. After we met, both of us knew it was a glove fit. Movement provided Jaclyn an opportunity to stretch her sales and consulting legs in the world of recruiting. Jaclyn brought to Movement a strong work ethic, a sharp mind, and a professional diligence that only people who are hard-wired to be successful bring. We think we may have another lifer here at Movement in Jaclyn Miracle.
