Career OpportunitiesThomas Byrne President of Thomas Byrne Associates, a Hartford, Connecticut based recruitment firm specializing in the placement of accounting and financial professionals
December 15, 2002, The Hartford Courant
Q: What initially attracted you to your career?
A: My family had a temporary employment business. In the 1980s, many of their clients told me about the lack of quality help companies were receiving when looking for top accounting and finance professionals. Because of my educational background in finance, and my consultative style, I was very interested in filling this niche in the market.
Q: What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
A: I get a great feeling being the person who brings positive change to high-potential people and prime companies. Hearing back from an accounting professional who loves a new job, and getting a thank-you call from the client where we've placed them, makes me come to work every day. I'm able to bring my own value system to this industry. The reward is when our customers understand that it's personal - my firm's values and my personal ones are one and the same.
Q: What advice would you offer someone who wants to follow a similar career path?
A: It's not about quantity - it's about getting it right the first time. Quality has always kept my business booming. We match the best people and the best opportunities. As a recruiter who's been in the industry for over 20 years, you have to love your job, raise your own bar on quality service every day, never sacrifice your ethics and ensure that every customer is at the top of your list. Never rest on the reputation you've built in the past.
