How iliopportunities is reinventing the recruiting wheel
When did hiring become so impersonal?
Who came up with the idea of using keywords in an applicant tracking system to screen out potential candidates? iliopportunities is a recruitment agency who likes to do things differently.
What differentiates us most is the great focus on client and candidate service. iliopportunities advocates very strongly for the candidate experience, and help people let go of the negative biases surrounding job-seekers, or the unemployed, or the “job-hopper”…
On the client side, we work very closely with the internal teams to understand their business and staffing needs. The only way that a recruiter can effectively hire for a company is to really understand them. Because we take the time to learn about our clients’ hiring needs, we also take the time to screen possible candidates. With this, we don’t simply send clients a slew of resumes with keywords, hoping for a hire. iliopportunities here to alleviate the stress of hiring, not to create more!
When did you begin your career in recruitment, and why?
I started in recruitment about 8 years ago or so. I basically just fell into the field. I began as a recruitment coordinator and worked my way from there in a few different corporate recruitment roles. Corporate meaning working as an internal recruiter. Prior to starting iliopportunities, I had never actually worked in an agency setting. I had opportunities to do so but decided not to take them.
What differentiates you from other headhunters, recruiters, and staffing agencies?
The thing that differentiates me most, is that I focus a great deal on customer and candidate service.
I advocate very strongly for the candidate experience, and help people let go of the negative biases surrounding job-seekers, or the unemployed, or the “job-hopper”…

How did you decide to start iliopportunities and working autonomously to help companies hire?
I decided to begin working autonomously as I was nearing the end of a contract with an incredible company, and decided that instead of job searching, I would try recruiting on my own.
Over the course of my career in recruitment, I had noticed a lot of areas necessitating improvement. The best way that I knew that I could make a difference was to really run the process on my own, therefore, iliopportunities was born. I wanted to recruit better. Recruiters and jobseekers alike get a lot of negative press, and so I needed to make a positive difference in the field.
