Summary

This episode features a conversation with Tina Hazlett, founder and CEO of Spectrum Recruiting Solutions, and Pete Codella, managing director of business services at the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity.

With Utah’s astoundingly low unemployment rate of 2.2%, finding talented and experienced employees is a serious assignment. Spectrum Recruiting Solutions partners with engineering and manufacturing companies to find exemplary talent for professional-level positions. Its match-making, unicorn-hunting team of experts specializes in finding ideal matches in the engineering and manufacturing job market.

Hazlett tells listeners about her passion for volunteer work and giving back to the community – notably the American Heart Association, founding Spectrum Recruiting Solutions in 2018, and the story of how she met with a recruiting firm and how they ended up hiring her. She tells about the satisfaction she receives when finding the right person for the position, why the recruiting company chose to focus on engineering and manufacturing, and the challenges her business faces with Utah’s historically low unemployment rate. Hazlett also shares her advice for job seekers, the trends she notices, what differentiates her recruiting company from others, and much more.
