It was an accident. It was not intentional. In August of 2012 Dell asked me to go to a Veteran career fair in Detroit. I wrote a passionate blog about my experience on how the career fair impacted me. It ended up being on the front page of Dell’s intranet for a couple of weeks. I had no idea what the future would hold. I just knew that I enjoyed writing. It was something that seemed to resonate with others and I was strongly encouraged by my colleagues to write more. After writing for Recruiting Blogs and guest blogging on just about every recruiting blogsite, I decided it was time to create my own blogsite Bulls Eye Recruiting.
I created a site in 2013 but it wasn’t until I did the redesign in late 2014 when I really started to notice a difference in the traffic. I have written on just about every topic in recruitment. I have given candidates advice on their career search. I have talked about social media. I have even talked about life in general. With every blog I became more passionate about the recruiting industry and the more time it consumed late into the night, after I finished my day of work and getting my kids settled into bed.
I had no intention of making Bulls Eye Recruiting anything more than a blog until people started asking questions. They would ask: “What is Bulls Eye Recruiting”? and “What Services Do You Provide?” I then started thinking, “How in the world am I going to monetize this?”
The more I wrote, the more of a chore blogging became. At one point last year I was writing 3-4 times a week. With a full-time job that became really tough to juggle. In my short time writing, I have seen more than a few bloggers fade off the map because they got burned out. I was close too hanging it up also.
I did a lot of soul searching and have really paid attention to the market in 2015. With more jobs created in 2014 than any other year since 1999, I knew that if I were going to make a change, 2015 would be the year to do it. I have always wanted to run my own company. In 2015, I have decided to go for it.
Yes, I will still write in 2015. It is something I very much enjoy. I do not plan on writing 3-4 times a week anymore though. There will be a number of guest posts and I will write when time allows. I will be a recruitment agency. There is a real shortage of experienced recruiters in the marketplace and organizations are looking to hire more than they have in previous years.
Bulls Eye recruiting as of mid-March 2015, has become a recruiting agency that focuses on recruiting top-tier sales talent, marketing, IT, human resource, and senior executives. Bulls Eye desires to work with organizations that are looking to take their company to the next level. Over the next year, there will be changes to the website to reflect the services provided.
As you may or may not have noticed, Bulls Eye has changed its tag line to “On target, every time”.
Please help spread the word about Bulls Eye Recruiting. If you have read this then I would appreciate you letting others know “What Services Bulls Eye Recruiting” does provide. Thank you as always for being a loyal reader!
