    The Accidental Occupation - Ryan Ayres

    My guest today is, Ryan Ayres. He may not be the patron saint of recruitment, but I can tell you first hand…he is a saint.

    Having worked along side him for a full year, he had good, bad, horrific and glorious days. Regardless and whatever the mood of the office or the tone of the client, Ryan’s glass was never half full… Ryan’s glass always runneth over!

    I remember his job interview with crystal clarity. I remember sitting there, listing to him and thinking, “Who is this serene fellow? Is he the offspring of Ram Das or is he a recent outcast from Rajneeshpuram??!! I could go on, but I think you get the point.

    Ryan is literally and genuinely one of the most caring and passionate recruitment professionals out there. All he wants is “to do good work” and I for one believe him. Oh, did I mention he’s collected a few hilarious stories along the way??

    But, don’t take it from me. Sit back, turn up the volume and take it from the man himself, Ryan Ayres!

Scintillating back and forth banter...

To begin, this series of what I would say is scintillating back and forth banter is a breath of fresh air.
I can honestly say that I was lax in the beginning of listening to this series of podcasts but now I look forward to them every opportunity I have-which is not many I can tell you.
Everything from the title/just a wonderful name & visual BTW, to the engaging and thought provoking dialogue amongst the professional HR guests really does shine a light on the humanity of an industry and its professionals that most people tend to dismiss or just not think of at all.

Kudos to the host for his honest, deep diving and eloquent look at an industry that most of us would never had thought of to look behind that curtain.
