Vaco Los Angeles Names Wendy Liu Technical Recruiter For Hot Technology Employment Market
“Change the way you look at stability,” Liu advises job seekers
LOS ANGELES, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Vaco Los Angeles LLC, a leading consulting and executive placement firm specializing in accounting, finance and information technology, today announced the appointment of Wendy Liu as technical recruiter. In the position, Liu will source and place both permanent hire and contract consultants for Vaco clients requiring technical and IT professionals in today’s booming tech market.
Liu joins Vaco with more than seven years as a technical recruiter, sourcing candidates with a range of skills such as .NET, Java/J2EE, SharePoint, Oracle, iOS, MicroStrategy and many others. She has been named an MVP in recruiting and been in the top percentage of producers in her previous firms.
When asked what her advice is to those seeking jobs in this active talent market, Liu said, “My advice for people looking for permanent positions is that they really need to change the way they think about stability. Stability in the IT world is different from other industries. In IT you need to always stay on top of your game – learn and stay abreast with the ever-changing times and technologies. Keep up-to-date and stay flexible. Candidates should consider consulting as a first priority. It’s a great career path and the best way for candidates to show potential employers their skills and determine how much they would like working there.”
To hiring managers, Liu advises that it is a candidate’s market at the moment. “A lot of companies are hiring and offering very attractive packages. Hiring managers need to move fast when viewing resumes, scheduling interviews and making offers. Quality candidates have many options so time is critical.”
According to Devon Zopfi, partner, Vaco Technology, “We’re excited to have Wendy on the team. She brings great experience as well as an excellent big picture view of IT employment. Our clients are appreciating her good eye for talent and dedicated work ethic. We have a strong company culture here at Vaco, and Wendy fits right in.”
