Hey Everyone, 

I work for a fast scaling Renewable energy business! I lead a small team of 4 TAs as well as Chairing the ED&I committee as Talent & Inclusion Lead.

Hey @Jason Tunney - welcome to a fellow renewables superfan! (Solar house and ½ fleet of EVs. My wife is warming up to a trade-in 😀)  If we get a surge of HR heroes in green business, I’m happy to create an industry group for y’all. 

@GlobalRecruiter - you are on fire! Love the questions and suggestions you’re offering the community on day one. Video gaming market set to hit a quarter of trillion USD this year? Insane.

Userlevel 2

Yeah, the industry is on fire, similar to others but we're certainly only hitting the tip of the iceberg with other industries entering the video game/VR technology scene such as healthcare etc.  Recruitment itself is at an all time high, especially for us hero's - I have never seen so many global roles on offer trying to entice me away from my job.  It’s very satisfying to see the whole HR/talent industry booming!

Hi all! I hope you’re well :)

Keith here. I’m content strategy manager at Workable and am loving this community.

I’m a father of two – one 10, one 5, both rambunctious, high-energy boys – and I’m also just outside of Boston.

Snack: can be an Indian snack delicacy I’ll find at a local Indian supermarket, or a slice (or three) of my wife’s amazing chocolate cake. 

Article of clothing: Now that the weather is cooling down, I’m wearing my super-awesome warm wooly socks that I’ve been waiting all summer to put on. They are, however, magnets for the dog hair that’s all over the carpet.

TV show: The Wire. End of discussion.

And I’ll add a fun fact: I’ve been to Chernobyl twice. Yes, really. It was back during peaceful times, in 2001-2002, when I was working in Kyiv. 

Edit: I forgot books – anything by Dostoyevsky. Time’s Arrow by Martin Amis absolutely broke my head. Victor LaValle – especially Big Machine. Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris – an amazing satire of working life in a corporate agency. And I’ll gladly lap up some early Stephen King.
