Doug is a recruiter that I admire because he pushes the boundaries of traditional recruitment. He’s based in Ottawa.

I took this photo of graffiti on the former W.C. Woods factory (Guelph, Ontario) before it was demolished. It is a fitting way to start to tell the history of the recruitment profession in Canada. When I speak to fellow recruiters, many say that the reason why they became recruiters is because they want to influence organizations in Canada. By recruiting the best talent to these organizations is one way that they are able to have an impact.
Full employment as a basic human right means that as recruiters we have a responsibility to present candidates to our clients that represent Canada’s diversity. Is this something that is taught in our profession? It is a question that I will be asking the recruiters about throughout this project.
