Distribution Talent

Electrical Distribution Talent

Good people are STILL hard to find. COVID has really shaken things up in all facets of the electrical industry, you likely have an inbox of those downsized candidates…I know I do.

What does not change in a period of uncertainty? Good people are hard to find, still hard at work, and maybe a little more receptive to making a move than ever before. This month, I thought we’d do try something new, showcasing those candidates who are nearly impossible to find when you need them.

If you are interested in learning more about them, please reach out to me at or 847-307-7126; and I’m happy to fill in the blanks. On the other hand, if you’re in a position where you’re considering making a move and would like to be featured in an upcoming showcase, let me know.
