This summer, the Campus Philly team took a tour of the Juno Search Partners offices in Center City (insider tip: they’re awesome, and there’s a shuffleboard table!) to learn about the women-owned company’s work in search and staffing. Juno specializes in connecting the right kind of people with the right kind of place throughout the Philadelphia and New York City metro region. They’re known as “The Ultimate Connectors” – the team of experienced recruiters specializes in assisting growing companies to build out their workforce through custom-built recruitment solutions.
While at Juno, we met with Dylan Foley, Director of Sales & Operations, to talk about his work at Juno and why it excites him so much, and how he ended up in Philly after growing up in Dublin, Ireland.
Check out our full interview with Dylan, and learn about his Philly story, below: Continue reading “From Dublin to Philly: Juno Search Partners’ Dylan Foley & his Philly Story”
