Chief Visionary Officer,Blockchain Recruiters
David James has always been the “Job Guy”. It just came to him naturally. He would see a void and had the uncanny ability to get the right person for the right situation. Everyone has their one unique gift or strength. In David’s case, recruiting and empowering people to reach their maximum potential using their specific skill sets is his innate God given talent. David made his first placement when he was 14, when he received $5 for convincing a nomadic cattle hand in a small Wyoming town to talk to a guy in a bar about throwing in as a sheepherder. As an enthusiastic wrestler on his high school team, David convinced a tuba player in the school marching band to join the wrestling team for one day, after some persuasive articulation, the musician was issued a uniform, weighed in later that day and went out to the mat that evening in the gym to be granted a 6-point decision due to forfeiture by the other team. When David entered the workforce, he was offered a job as a recruiter at a prestigious executive search firm. He knew from his first day on the job that he had found his calling. He placed the first candidate he recruited at the first company he ever developed as a client his first week at work....a remarkable and unprecedented feat. David learned early on that empowerment was the key to successful recruitment. The formula was simple. Find “A” players who are on “B” teams, identify their corporate wounds and satiate them from there. David continues to fall in love with recruiting every day more and more since he entered the profession in 1988. David also saw the power of blockchain technology and knows that when we get past the wild wild west of it, and when it comes to be for the masses, that there will be an intensive need for operators and innovative talents that speak and think all things web3. For that reason, David and his partner Dave Hampton have put all their effort and accelerant into Blockchain Recruiters. “What we do is simple, we aggregate all the smartest blockchain talent worldwide, and store it in our database for future contact. When the clients call in dire need for people with excellence and mastery in the space. We know who they are and where they are.” This is a technique that most recruiters ignore, let alone master like David has with BlockchainRecruiters.net When David first learned about recruiting, he literally said to the person interviewing him “wait you get paid for this? I would help someone get a job for free!” The key to anything job related is loving the work.
