A Letter from Sandra: My Story
When I was a young girl, I dreamed of being a newscaster—to be on national tv, conduct interviews, and deliver exciting news about people’s lives. However, life has a funny way of taking you down a different path and I found myself being drawn to a career in recruiting. I ended up landing a job as an IT Recruiter, and 10 years ago, I successfully started my own recruitment firm. Everything about owning and managing Insight Talent Solutions is what I am truly passionate about, and I realized there are a multitude of common qualities between the path that I dreamed of taking and the path that I chose. I do get to meet a variety of interesting people, conduct interviews, and deliver exciting stories about those people’s lives. I also have the privilege of helping companies succeed in delivering the human capital they need and enrich the lives of the candidates that I place. This is my story, and I am very fortunate to have found this career.
For the past 25 years, I have used an innovative and comprehensive approach to help companies find candidates who are excited about the work that they do and as a result, achieve significant, measurable results. I am passionate about taking the time to understand both my clients’ and candidates’ unique needs, and am just as committed to your success as you are. I look forward to hearing your story and working with you!
