A primetime TV soap-series with a business take on career happiness, this new series will take a dark look at the recruiterazzi, where the secret lives of names sourcers and talent scouts aren’t always what they seem.
The series began with Noreen Collin picking up her Panasonic telephone and placing her Plantronics wireless headset across her perfectly coifed hair ? and calling the main number of a Fortune 50 company. Now she takes us into the lives of recruiters, gatekeepers, passive candidates, clients, and yes, even the occasional attorney, commenting from her elevated POV.
Her circle of girlfriends on Hysteria Lane include Michelle Romula, the divorcee and sole proprietor recruiter who will go to extraordinary lengths for new clients; Apple Roberts, who recently went from being a work-from-home recruiter back to her fast track career in corporate talent acquisition; Joan Summers, a Shally Steckerl on steroids, whose recent layoff as head of sourcing from the world?s largest employment firm has completely reeked havoc on her perfect life; and Candida Sellus, the ex-superstar account manager with everything she’s ever wanted – a rich husband who owns the Internet?s largest online recruiting community, a big house, and now a baby to go with it all? the problem is she’s not sure if her ex?s site really is the largest; and serial commenter Caren Sweerd, a self-appointed recruiting expert whose opinions have everyone buzzing. Enter newcomer Betty Wont and her handsome recent MBA son, Willy, who mysteriously moved into a vacant office they’d never seen in the middle of the night.
Then there are the men: Willy Makeit, a supposedly widowed agency recruiter who has won Michelle?s heart; Apple?s adorable husband, Glenn, who volunteered to be a stay-at-home “Mr. Sourcer” so his wife can go back to work; Candida?s better half, Russ, who is currently in jail in Virginia and recently learned of his wife’s cheesy business development activities with Joel, the creative blogger; and Noreen?s widowed husband, Bob, who is on the run from the bad recruiting debt in his past.
From her unique vantage point, Noreen hears more now than she ever did, and she’s planning to share the magic of the method that she uses to uncover the secrets lives of recruiters, gatekeepers, passive candidates, clients, and yes, even the occasional attorney ? all who hide behind every company?s quest for the perfect American balance sheet.
