HRCap E-Newsletter (June 27, 2016)

HRCap Celebrates its 16th Anniversary!

HRCap, Inc. marked its 16th anniversary this year on June 7. Since 2000, we have truly deepened and expanded our global footprint as the top Korean-American executive search & recruiting firm in the United States.

In the past 16 years, we have worked on more than 15,000 cases and have successfully placed more than 5000 candidates on both local and global opportunities with our American and Korean clientele. One of our strongest assets continues to be our extensive candidate database that holds 60,000 resumes of highly qualified Korean Americans and 400,000 resumes of carefully screened non-Koreans in the United States. We have formed integral strategic partnerships with the Korean government, business corporations, and other national associations to help globalize the workforce and mobilize the labor market. We have also expanded our coverage by deepening our expertise in Biopharma, ICT (Information & Communication Technology) and Financial Services. Most importantly, we have strategically increased our manpower and strengthened our organizational talent by sourcing experienced recruiters and business development leaders to grow our global eminence.

We have encountered various challenges and many ups and downs on our journey, but have significantly grown from each obstacle to effectively strengthen our expertise and refine our client services. In doing so, we have sourced top talents to our clients, provided meaningful career opportunities to our candidates, and contributed to the expansion of the Global HR market.

We would like to thank all of our business partners and candidates for confiding in us and allowing us to provide high-quality services. Thank you for helping us make the past 16 years so successful and meaningful. We look forward to working even more closely with each and every one of you to provide the services you deserve.

HRCap's CEO Participated in the New York K-Move Center's Second Quarter Meeting

KOTRA (Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency) New York held the Second Quarter Meeting at the Korean Consulate Conference Hall in New York City on Monday June 20. Our CEO Mr. Andrew Sungsoo Kim once again worked with leading industry and field experts to talk through business results from the first half of the year and to share business plans for the second half. The “KOTRA New York K-Move Center” will provide the necessary career guidance and essential networking opportunities for young Korean professionals pursuing opportunities. Our management philosophy believes in the power of community building and social impact, and HRCap takes great corporate responsibility to actively support and contribute to the Global HR market. Our management team leverages our rooted networks with national associations and partnerships with global clients to drive meaningful connections and to create new opportunities. We believe that these regular quarterly K-Move meetings will drive transformative results for the Korean government’s K-Move program, and we look forward to staying fully committed to K-Move’s mission. Job Hopping Could be Hurting Your Career

According to the 2016 Indeed surveys, 58 percent of U.S. adults look around monthly for new career opportunities, while Gallop polls the number of current employees open to new job opportunities at 51 percent. Job hopping has become much more common among younger workers today than it has in the past, but that does not mean employers are happy to see frequent job changes on a candidate’s resume. While one may job hop to improve his or her compensation, benefits, working environments or overall career opportunity, holding several jobs over a short period of time can undoubtedly signal to an employer that the candidate may not stick around for too long. We recommend our candidates to ensure that every opportunity taken is a vertical or lateral career move allowing for skills growth and deepened expertise. We believe skills have become the new global currency that empowers and drives business transformations and organizational growth. Consider how each new position could build your expertise, then look for a unique job that you can stay with for the long run to become an industry and subject matter expert.
