My name’s Martin Burns. I’m a recruiter. Which (IMHO) means I’m engaged in one of the most important parts of the economy – understanding, and impacting, how people answer two interlaced questions: “How do I find a job?” and “How do I find someone to do this job?” We (and I’m looking directly at you) need to make it easier to answer those two questions. The movement of capital relies on it, and the movement of capital defines how well we live our lives.
Personally/ professional history:
- My background’s a mix – recruitment, sales, marketing, and a few other skill sets mixed in. Life’s been good to me.
- I’m a husband and father – amazing wife, and two incredible kids. My parents and siblings are equally great. Life’s been very good to me.
I’ve been working for as long as I can remember – I sold seed packets door to door in elementary school, to win points for a baseball glove, and got hooked on the idea that effort = stuff. Seemed like a nice, simple concept I could get behind.
My major personal interests are recruitment, literature, writing, philosophy, culture and cuisine. The connections are there – I think recruitment is one of the most underrated drivers of civilization. Its impact on economies, militaries, societies and growth is stupendous. I’ve spent the better part of a decade & a half now in that world, as a participant-observer, critic and fan. The cuisine part is mostly my fancy way of saying that I like food. Quite a bit.
Right now, I am working at Mobiquity (look ‘em up – they’re turning into a big deal) as their Director of Talent Acquisition – and, I am hiring…
