Founder of "Career Transition U" which discovers your strategic assets on which you can build your virtual ventures.
Paul & I have worked together twice in our careers. Paul has great people abilities. He, by simply starting conversations, can engage others and bring talented people together. He has already taken performances up a notch or several notches. Paul is also a considerate, caring and accepting type of person. He has a sense of purpose and is a bridge builder. Paul has the great ability to easily energize the plans and ideas of others. If there is a person that can make it happen, Paul is the one.
When I first met Paul at Physicians Mutual, I wasn't aware that he was a technical recruiter. I thought he was just unusually sincere and pleasant. He was that person who smiled at and said hello to everybody who walked by. I don't know how he remember 500 names, but he did!
I first met Paul Madsen while he was conducting a workshop designed around his book "Laid Off and Loving It...Rebuilding Your Career or Small Business With Social Media's Help" with the Omaha Career Networking Support Group.
He was the main presenter in a half-day workshop designed to help our members successfully employ new tactics in finding meaningful work.
Paul has great insights into the hiring process to help people understand their strengths, abilities, and where best they can find success in their career.
I am sure this is also a great skill for his role as a recruiter in matching the right person to a position, maximizing success for both the company and candidate.
Paul is one of the most driven, professional recruiter and proactive talent finders I know. It was a pleasure working with him. His dedication to his work is to be admired
Paul is very passionate about his work and always willing to help. He supported me in some of our technology recruiting efforts and I always found him to be very enthusiastic and full of positive energy. He has a great network in the Omaha region that was very helpful in identifying some very talented individuals that we hired at TD Ameritrade. He has a great attitude and is a team player, I am sure he will add a lot of value to any team/company that he works with.
As a co-worker in a corporate HR team, I personally have seen Paul's team-oriented and collaborative style provide value to the organization. Paul's extensive background in talent acquisition and sourcing gets results. He has a wealth of contacts he proactively leverages to find the right people quickly. Paul understands the recruitment process with exceptional depth and breadth, from all perspectives (candidate, recruiter, and hiring manager). I recommend him for any talent acquisition related role.
Paul has done a wonderful job working with me to locate quality candidates for my engineering team. He has been proactive and thorough in combing the market for exceptional talent. In addition, he is responsive and has been an absolute pleasure to work with in finding and bringing on great candidates. I highly recommend Paul!
