I'm fairly open to connect with people here on LinkedIn, whether we've worked together or not. However, I am honestly a bit more hesitant to connect with those without relevant information on their profiles. A photo would also be appreciated

I'm fairly open to connect with people here on LinkedIn, whether we've worked together or not. However, I am honestly a bit more hesitant to connect with those without relevant information on their profiles. A photo would also be appreciated since this is a professional networking site after all. So let's keep it professional.
My connections are visible to my contacts, and I am hoping for the same courtesy from anyone who requests to link in, especially if you advertise/introduce yourself as an open networker.
I enjoy building teams and knowing that I help people grow in their careers are the reasons why I enjoy what I do.
My profile is still under construction as I am trying to make it more like a narrative instead of the standard resume with bullet points. So please bear with it for now. :)

I was then converted to a full-time employee at the end of my contract, where I continued to support our technical and non-technical hiring needs in the US, Europe, and Asia. I performed full-cycle recruiting for our Eng Ops roles, but I also sourced for the other technical and non-technical roles of the company to help other recruiters with their pipelines.

From May 2010 to July 2010 (3 months) Recruiter @ I planned a move from Michigan to the San Francisco Bay Area, and decided to join another consulting group, called AB Star Group. The role here was pretty similar to the one I had at Global Consulting Group, except that the company was smaller. Aside from full-cycle recruiting, account management, and consultant marketing, I would also help out in a technical support capacity such as troubleshooting devices and network connectivity, creating/deleting employee email accounts, setting up workstations, etc. From May 2007 to March 2010 (2 years 11 months) Technnical Recruiter/Account Manager @ I left my previous job in the Philippines after being hired as by a consulting company in Michigan. I had previously offered our recruiting services to this company, but was eventually asked to interview with them. This was my experience doing recruiting for the US market. It was also my first experience marketing candidates and looking for jobs for them. I was used to receiving a job requisition first, and then finding people to fill these reqs. That was still the case here, but this time I also needed to help our consultants get jobs.
I initially supported a team of 12 other account managers with regard to their need for corp-to-corp consultants, and was tasked to monitor activity such as candidate submissions and placements. There was a time where I was also tasked to supervise an offshore team of 3 recruiters in India. By the end of my stay there, I was a team lead of one of our four regional teams, which consisted of 3 recruiters/account managers per team.
We were all full-cycle recruiters and account managers. Not only did we find people for job requisitions, we also found jobs for our benched consultants, and coordinated everything else, from interview schedules, training, travel logistics, etc. From April 2006 to April 2007 (1 year 1 month) Associate @ I started my career as a Recruiter for the top executive search firm in the Philippines. There I was, fresh from getting my Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems, and I was already meeting with C-level folks from our local and foreign clients. I was tasked to perform technical recruiting and some account management for our BPO clients. My searches included junior to senior level positions such as searches for software developers, network and system administrators, Project Managers, IT Managers, Technology Directors, CIO’s, CTO’s, and so on. Other searches involved sales, graphic design, financial, and marketing positions.
It wasn't until after my first month that I was able to get someone hired at one of my startup clients, which was based in Ireland/California, but was also building their pioneer team in the Philippines. It was this hire that helped me realize how much I enjoyed helping others get to that next step in their careers. It was also this experience of helping build this pioneer team that made me realize that I enjoy building/growing teams.
I eventually ended up recruiting for and managing more accounts, and I ended my stay here as a team lead with two other recruiters in my team. From April 2004 to March 2006 (2 years)
