About Chris


I started my career as an IT professional and consultant, eventually finding my true passion in the Recruiting/Sourcing/HR community.  I am currently working as a Consultant through my company Havrilla LLC,  as well as with the incredible team at Recruiting Toolbox, where I focus on all aspects of strategy, process, and technology as it relates to Recruiting, Sourcing, Talent Management and Development.  My Recruiting background is largely corporate in nature, though I do have some experience in third party recruitment.  Previous employers include Hitachi Consulting, Eclipsys, Deloitte, Computer Task Group (CTG), and Georgia-Pacific. As a consultant, I have had clients ranging from SMB markets to the Fortune 100.  I have a strong client service orientation, so whether my role is internal or external, it is certainly the approach I take.

I hold a BBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Georgia. GO DAWGS!!!

I am actively involved (attending, speaking, writing, presenting, participating) with several local and national groups/associations/conferences such as Atlanta Director of Recruiting Roundtable, GAPS, Halogen User Conference, Human Capital Institute (HCI), HREvolution, IQPC, mRecruitingCamp, SHRM-Atlanta, Social Media Atlanta, RecruitFest, Recruiting Innovation Summit, Social Recruiting Summit, SourceCon, Technology Association of Georga (TAG) Recruiting Society, TRU — and also served previously as a member of Monster.Com’s Advisory Board, Expert Adviser (Acquisition)/guest blogger for the Human Capital Institute (HCI), and AIRS Recruitment Technology Roundtable.  I am currently serving as Vice President, Social Media for SHRM-Atlanta, on the board of TAG Recruiting Society, and on the Editorial Advisory Board of HRExaminer.  In addition to the Recruiter Chicks blog, I am also a regular contributor to the Jobsite.com blog.  I have had the great opportunity to be quoted on Mashable, American Express OPEN Forum, US News & World Report, and Yahoo! Finance.  Online radio appearances include HRExaminer RadioBusiness Transformation Radio, #TChat Radio – World of Work, DriveThru HR (DTHR – 1/27/11, 5/31/11, 11/2/11, 2/1/12, 4/26/13), The Recruiting Animal Show, Recruiter House Party, TalkSourcing, and HR Happy Hour.

So welcome, I hope you enjoy our blog, and look forward to the conversation if you so choose.
