These days it seems “reality” is everywhere. Reality television shows exist about everything from bachelors to housewives to duck hunters, their stars staring down on us from the magazine racks at the grocery store checkout. Most of these shows are clearly staged and scripted for the highest level of drama and shock value. Even when we know they aren’t exactly “real,” we can’t get enough. But why? Are our actual lives not exciting enough?
The truth is many of us are out there in the “real world” doing things every day that are pretty interesting. Those familiar with the staffing industry know that it can be a pretty exciting and dynamic world to be in. While everyone of a certain age has probably looked for a job (or several) in their lives, and may have even worked with a staffing agency, few have had any insight into what it’s like on the other side. Until now. Enter the Real World Staffing documentary, a raw inside look into the world of staffing from RecruiterEco and Mez Media.
But do we really need another “reality” experience? And about a staffing firm?
The documentary isn’t about just any staffing firm. The film gives an inside view into the world of Terra Staffing Group, a wildly successful Seattle-based agency with Terra’s VP of Sales and Marketing and industry veteran, Jenifer Lambert, as its star. The documentary will be the first of its kind, and many in the industry, including the staff at iCIMS, are anxiously awaiting its premier.
iCIMS and RecruiterEco have been working together for the past 5 years. With iCIMS providing technology solutions to help HR professionals target, source and recruit top talent and RecruiterEco providing an online community where over 130,000 of those professionals gather for the latest recruiting buzz, working together has been a no-brainer. When Jonathan Weiner and Jim Shaki of Mez Media approached us about sponsoring this project, we were excited to support them but had no idea what to expect. A year later we’ve seen the project come full-circle and we couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it.
Real World Staffing will premiere February 21, 2014 in Charlotte, North Carolina at Jenifer Lambert’s Power Retreat. Until then I guess you’ll have to entertain yourself with bachelors, housewives and ducks.
