I recently wrote about our search to fill a new full time position in our office and about the large number of people who applied. Our small, free, CraigsList.com ad produce the first applicants within 15 minutes of when it was posted and a total of over 30 prospects within 24 hours after which we withdrew the ad. The last couple of days have been spent reviewing all of the resumes, speaking over the telephone with several people, and then personally interviewing the best qualified candidates.
After this review, although there were many very qualified job seekers, I can state unequivocally that we have selected a remarkable person for the job of listing coordinator. Giulia Luzzana is tremendously talented, very pleasant, and will be a huge asset to our company. With solid computer knowledge as well as real estate experience we could not have found a better person for the job. We often remark that due to economic conditions, we are currently in a Buyer’s Market. We are most certainly in an “Employer’s Market” as well. The winners are my small Gatlinburg real estate company and our very qualified new employee. Please join me in welcoming Giulia Luzzana to our team!
