Happy Thanksgiving! What a year it has been! As we take time to reflect upon all that we are thankful for, I wanted to express great appreciation to the team at ATR International.

I’ve worked in the staffing industry for almost 20 years. I’ve worked for firms of all sizes and even owned my own staffing firm. I’ve provided hundreds of companies with a wide range of talent, across dozens of industries. And even with all that experience, I don’t have all the answers when it comes to hiring.
