Meet Mike Gunther – Recruiter Extraordinaire!
My name is Mike Gunther and I’m a Senior Recruiter at the PACE Staffing Network . I’ve worked for PACE for over 6 years in a variety of roles – but all related to recruiting, getting great candidates to our employer clients.
Currently my role on the team is to a senior recruiter. I handle requests for direct hire, temp to hire and long term contract roles. I screen candidates to our cient’s specifications plus get them ready to earn a place on my client’s short list. With unemployment rates at a historical low, I know this is a difficult time to be in staffing but I enjoy the challenge of uncovering those hard to find candidates for my clients.
I also make a difference by providing someone looking for job with opportunities they not be able to find on their own. PACE is very tapped into the hidden job market – jobs that never get posted, because we fill them first.
I began my career in staffing at Microsoft, learning all the nuances of a fast paced staffing environment. I decided to work for PACE because got a sense right away that PACE was a company of integrity and a place that upheld a high standard of service – two things that are very important to me!
A lot of positions I work on require bilingual language skills – often working with candidates who are seeking their first job in the US. I love this kind of recruiting, particularly when a number of the bilingual employees I’ve placed get their first promotions.
On my time off I enjoy going to music concerts, DJ’ing at events, viewing art, traveling and collecting vinyl records.
I’m a full blown Chuck Norris groupie – but my favorite all time quote is from Wayne Gretzky – “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky.
Here is a pic of Mike doing what he loves, DJ’ing at a local event.
PACE has had the pleasure of having Mike on our team for 5 years now and he does a phenomenal job for us! He is a heads-down worker and is extremely dedicated to his craft. Thanks Mike for all your hard work!
