Source Talent: Identify, source and engage candidates through creative and innovative sourcing approaches. Utilize platforms like Indeed and LinkedIn to scout talent that aligns with the objectives of the hiring managers. Manage LinkedIn messages and communication with candidates.  Coordinate events when necessary for an effective and efficient interview process.


Evaluate and Hire Talent: Identify and connect with top talent for the open roles. Review and pre-screen resumes.
