As the wood and wood products sector crawls back from the down-turn in the economy Ryan Fullerton often reflects on the roller coaster ride encountered when developing and growing Trade Job Placement.
Having grown up in the wood products and general contracting fields, Fullerton was always quick to remember his roots as he built a successful career in sales. This career put him working with manufacturers of all types nationwide. When working with multiple manufacturers, he was always curious of what qualities some business models had, which pushed them to realize success at a higher level than other similar manufacturers. The one common denominator that always presented itself was the difference in employee job satisfaction, skills, and relationships with co-workers.
Having been recruited by executive search companies more than once, Fullerton began to consider how fulfilling it could be to be a part in helping companies locate and hire talented and qualified help, while equally giving strong attention in attempting to put the right people with the right manufacturers to assist in generating the success he witnessed in certain manufacturing companies.
Thus the development of RC Fullerton, LLC which is the parent company of Trade Job Placement. Trade Job Placement has made a commitment to the wood and wood products manufacturing fields and has enjoyed steady success as those utilizing the service find the fee’s to be fair and the company’s ethics based business model pleasing.
Now servicing over 100 manufacturers nationwide and having direct access to several thousand wood working professionals nationwide, Trade Job Placement has ramped from recruiting solely in the engineering fields to recruiting all positions in the wood manufacturing fields. Fullerton was quick to mention how quickly companies asked that Trade Job Placement begin recruiting for all positions, and how hesitant he was in making this change. However, he was pleasantly surprised at how easily the transition took effect and how quickly the company was able to harness the attention of candidates in other fields.
When asked what he expects in the coming future for Trade Job Placement, Fullerton replied that it would be “slow and steady wins the race” mentality and not simply chasing the capture of fees. Having placements that respect how they were treated, and who are content in their new positions; is more important than quick growth.
Equally as important is the identification of top manufacturing companies known for their long employee retention and respected for how they treat their employees. In this business we are often an instrumental part in getting job seekers to consider relocating. When one considers the implications of this, you quickly understand that it involves selling of homes, placing children in new schools, having a spouse upset their career, among countless other issues. Anyone who doesn’t carefully take these things into consideration or does not put a great deal of their time into assuring that the hiring company and job candidate are a good fit, doesn’t need to be in the recruiting business.
