Jeff Krukin is a Search Consultant for Global Recruiters Network of Chapel Hill (GRN). Jeff helps his IT clients achieve their business goals by finding and placing A-list talent. He says, “I start by asking questions and listening thoughtfully to the answers. I don’t just screen applicants; I find top performers who are open to new opportunities yet not actively searching, and so they will never know about your hiring needs.”
Global Recruiters of Chapel Hill specializes in recruiting and placing top talent in the engineering, software, industrial automation, and clean technology industries. They are dedicated to developing long-term strategic alliances with client companies and candidates alike, and we strictly adhere to our guiding principles of honesty, integrity and confidentiality.
Jeff continues, “I like ice cream, reading, writing, and old movies (think Turner Classic Movies). It is important to me that I make a difference and have a positive impact – I am starting a new job (third career!) as a search consultant at Global Recruiters Network-Chapel Hill.”
