Analysis & Problem Solving

Through data analytics, I can also help HR & TA teams answer the following questions / solve the following problems:

  • Why are so many people dropping out of our hiring funnel?
  • Where are we losing the most applicants?
  • Where are we getting most of the employees that we actually hire?
  • Is our employee referral program still our best recruiting tool?
  • Is it worthwhile to keep advertising jobs on ____ platform?
  • I need actionable data to tell hiring managers they don’t need 5 different interviews!
  • Are we alienating good talent by asking them to take a screening test?
  • This ad used to bring in a lot of candidates… why isn’t it working anymore?
  • Is our average time-to-hire way too short/long?
  • What is our current DEI profile? How can we improve it?

My Methods & Work Style

I work independently and autonomously from my office as a true 1099 consultant & SME, not an employee of your company.


After our initial intake call to determine your needs and establish if I can help you, we will communicate via email. So if you’re looking for someone who’ll camp out on a Slack channel all day or who’s always willing to “hop on Zoom,” I’m not the consultant for you. Put simply: you tell me what you need accomplished and then I’ll work independently to make it happen for you. No phone calls, Zoom calls, or chit-chats needed. Think of it this way: you’re a busy professional yourself. Your goal in hiring a consultant is to outsource your project to an expert who can deliver outstanding results on time and on budget. Your goal is not to be a micromanager or a babysitter. (And if it is, well, you’re totally in the wrong place!)


I am most interested in working with medium to large established companies. I have experience with Fortune 500 firms with a global presence as well as medium companies with 200-500 people in regional offices. These companies have enough infrastructure to truly support a sensible hiring strategy and to onboard candidates in a way that is modern and nimble. I do not work with young start-up companies or organizations that are not truly able to hire employees.

May the 4th be with you! I had a great time speaking with Russ Johns on The Pirate Broadcast. We discuss abundance versus the scarcity mindset, “let me pick your brain” requests, limiting beliefs, etc.


The Pirate Broadcast Interview


I had an absolute blast talking with Michael “Fritz” Fritzius of Arch DevOps. We discussed everything from taxes to hustle porn to embracing the splat to Wile E. Coyote to epic business fails to Gordon Gekko to Kevin O’Leary. Check it out here:


Arch DevOps Interview


I had the pleasure of being a guest on Eric Dye’s podcast, which is part of the Enterprise Radio Network. In this interview, I speak candidly about the ups and downs of my first business, a staffing firm I operated as a solopreneur. What do you do when the parachute doesn’t open? Also, why am I so convinced that mindset is the key to your success or failure? Find out here:


What All Staffing Professionals Need To Know


I was recently interviewed by Ryan O’Donnell, the Host of PeopleTalk. In this discussion, I talk about my experience running a staffing agency for myself and what you need to consider if you are thinking about running a solo recruiting desk. There is a clear difference between working IN a business versus ON a business.
