Brandi Scott has returned to recruiting with Experis. "My tenure at AIM first introduced me to the world of recruiting and after running into an old colleague from those days, I've now joined the very team that placed me in roles that have built my career. As an IT Recruiter for Experis, I'm one of a dozen veteran recruiters who work with clients like ExxonMobil, Lyondell, United Airlines, Halliburton, Schlumberger, SCI, Memorial Hermann, TCH, CenterPoint Energy, and several others seeking IT talent. Even caught up with one of my former AIM IT Boot Campers who is now an IT Director! This is so much fun and the biggest reward is the feeling of joy when my candidates receive a job offer," shares Brandi.
I'm thrilled there continues to be more AIM Alumni attending (the happy hours). It's truly special to be part of such a unique group.
