I have +10 years of experience in recruitment including the last 8 years in technology roles in Montreal (Web, IoT, Hardware ...) for Canadian and American teams. I will always ask you about your careers wishes and if you are exploring other avenues. I also like to ask questions about your experience of working in a team, the initiatives that you have carried out by yourself. For technical positions in Canada at IT Link (permanent or freelance), it is possible that after our exchange I will send you a code test or quiz attesting your "hard skills" but for me your "soft skills" are all also important. I am passionate about Sourcing (a technique aimed at finding candidates on the web in an innovative way) and automation in recruitment.
