Whether an employee or helping job-seekers find work, if you prefer “professional Haig” on the left, I will not disappoint. The informal Haig on the right has proven to fit in anywhere -- even if he’s dressed in a business suit at a luau. Thoughtful, tactful, analytical, innovative, tenacious, focused, collaborative, decisive, proactive: These are words that describe me in the workplace ... and "fun."
Performed and managed full-cycle recruiting responsibilities for companies traversing growth technologies from PC sub-systems to video encoders/decoders, 3D graphic controllers, broadband networking, enterprise solutions, NAND, Solid State Drives, and storage virtualization.
Combined innovative sourcing strategies with routine cold-calling campaigns. Internet sourcing sleuth who has never suffered from the PCRS (phone call reluctance syndrome).
Prior to high-tech recruiting I spent several years in sales and marketing management including six years with an international consulting company in Managing for Quality, Juran Institute (www.juran.com). Juran Institute fostered my problem solving skills and introduced me to practices and processes such as market analysis, cost reduction, Customer Quality, Quality Improvement, and project planning – shaping my work ethic to this day.
