Real World Staffing - The Documentary

Peter Clayton talks with Jonathan Weiner, Executive Producer of A Real World Documentary on the Staffing Profession

Jonathan Weiner- Executive Producer, Real World Staffing - TotalPicture Radio InterviewJonathan Weiner

As anyone in the recruiting or staffing profession will tell you, misconceptions and misinformation run rampant. A new film documenting the "day-in-the-life" of a real recruiting professional aims to show how the business really works.

I met Jonathan Weiner in New York several years ago and was impressed by the quality of the film and video work he was doing, and his success in executive search and staffing. A rare combination. We had agreed to stay in touch. However,  he returned to North Carolina, I returned to Connecticut, and that was the end of our contact - until several weeks ago, when I interviewed Karen Russo, executive search and sourcing professional. Karen moved her business, International Executive Research & Search - IIPE - from Stamford, CT to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I wanted to know why! (See the link on the sidebar). Karen, a born people-connector, did just that!

So here's the backstory: Jonathan Weiner and his partner at Mez Media, Jim Shaki, wanted to showcase a high performer in the recruiting and staffing industry with documented success. They chose to profile truly a successful staffing and recruiting professional with proven accomplishments, a stellar resume, real clients and the type of integrity that the industry values most. They chose Jenifer Lambert, vice president, sales and marketing with TERRA Staffing Group. Jenifer has been a member of the Pinnacle Society, a consortium of the nation's top producing recruiters and is a noted trainer and public speaker.

According to Jonathan, his documentary "will give you a front row seat of what it's like to build a highly successful staffing and recruiting practice that has endured every ebb and flow in its path throughout a myriad of economic turns. You will not only be astonished by the real impact Jenifer has on her candidates but also the impact her clients feel as they truly affect the success of their business with the number one asset in the world: People."
