The work of Women in Technology has an incredible impact.
Since 1992, Women in Technology has had a mission dedicated to promoting the advancement of women in Georgia’s technology community. Through the WIT COMMUNITY, WIT also educates and encourages girls and young women to pursue careers in STEAM.
Through recruiting, David McCollum (the Senior Account Manager at Alliance of Computer Professionals) discovered a definite passion for not only providing corporations with the best talent available, but more importantly building relationships with people and aiding them in their pursuit for career development/progression. This discovery led to Career Coaching.
As a senior talent acquisition and talent development leader with corporate, agency, contingency, and RPO recruiting and management experience, he is adept developing effective recruiting strategies that incorporate social media communication and networking, conducting hiring events/job fairs, accessing and developing relationships within associations that promote diversity and inclusion, college internship talent pool accrual, internal employee referral programs, executive and mid level management professional association referral programs, and judicial use of career and job boards.
In organizational leadership, teams know where they stand with him and he knows where he stands with his team through consistent transparent communication. His teams use consultative communication to aid hiring managers and collaborate with human resources business partners to accomplish the goal of acquiring highly viable candidates, treating them respectfully as a person, and aiding the organization’s business.
He believes everyone was created for a purpose and if he can be of any assistance in developing or shedding even a glimpse of light to enable someone to grasp their purpose then he is giving maximum effort!
