Mark Your Calendar for These October Happenings

Fall is finally in full swing, and isn’t it just great? Pumpkin-flavored everything is everywhere, the leaves are changing color and Halloween is just around the corner.

If you’re searching for jobs in Lehigh Valley, PA or trying to fill open positions, you’re probably pretty busy, but this is one of the best times of year in our local area. Make time to enjoy the season, because winter will be here before you know it.

There’s always something fun going on in our region. In fact, it’s usually hard to decide which event to attend, because there’s so many. However, these three October happenings stood out to use, and we think you’ll have a blast at them too.

CEO Letter

As a staffing and recruitment professional for over  30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry. Over that time, I’ve witnessed a transformation in the way organizations view staffing services. Today, we see more and more companies using staffing services as a strategic tool, rather than just for temporary fill-ins.

At HTSS, Inc., our focus is on helping companies create proactive workforce plans. Our goal is to help our clients use staffing strategically to increase capacity, overcome hiring freezes, access specialized talent, better manage increased workloads, and enhance overall productivity.

For our candidates, we help to uncover truly rewarding job opportunities—jobs that are a match to each candidate’s skills, and jobs that offer key experience and growth potential.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships with our current clients and candidates, as well as forming new and exciting partnerships in the future.
