How Omni’s recruiters found one man the perfect IT job – twice.

#WeAreOmni Community Staffing

Recently, I started leading the Talent Acquisition Team at Omni and have been amazed by the hard work and dedication of our seasoned recruiters. Their role is more than filling vacancies – they focus on finding long-term candidates for positions that require a specific skill set. They are passionate about working with each candidate to make sure a match is the best possible fit for both the candidate and the client. Here’s a story that demonstrates this dedication.

This is the one thing every consultant should look for in an IT consulting company.

#WeAreOmni Staffing Culture

There has never been a better time to be a technology consultant. The technology talent crunch is real, thanks to the rapid evolution of technology, the competition between companies for top IT talent and the limited number of professionals with sought-after technological skills. That means that if you're an IT consultant, you've got a lot of choices. Agencies are after you. Corporations want you. Small to mid-size businesses need you. Recruiters are banging down your door. So how do you know which opportunities to pursue? The short answer? Work for the technology consulting company that prioritizes your happiness. That might sound trite but consultant happiness is important for a consulting firm, says Omni Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist Kaycee Whitaker.

Well Paid but Bored: 5 Things to Do When Your IT Job Bores You

Staffing Culture #WeAreOmni

You've been at your job for a while, and, on paper, it looks great: your job pays well, the benefits are good and you've negotiated a flexible schedule. All of these things are great and you're grateful for them but there's a problem: you're bored. Maybe you've been doing the work long enough that it's not fulfilling. Maybe you've risen as far as you can at this job. So what do you do when you don't want to leave your benefits but your boredom makes you dread going to work? First of all, take heart because you're not alone. According to Gallup's State of the American Workplace report, of the 100 million workers in the US workforce, 67 percent are disengaged.

Are Consultants Always On The Road? The Top 5 Myths About Becoming an IT Consultant

Staffing Culture #WeAreOmni

You've got a great job in IT – you're full-time, you get good benefits and you're well paid, but you're bored. Maybe you've climbed the ladder as far as you can at your job. Or maybe you have your own business, but time you have to spend finding clients takes you away from the development work you love. Or maybe you're just starting out but you don't know where you should look for work.

Adventures in Editors

#WeAreOmni Software Development

Text editors are strange when you’re a developer. At first glance, it seems like they should be some of the simplest applications on your machine; but as a developer it also most likely your most used. This, coupled with the fact that “good programmers are lazy” and want to get things done as easily as possible, means text editors have been the focus of a lot of time by a lot of motivated people. This of course, leads to editors that are constantly changing, whether it be updated versions, new features, new plugins, or entirely different editors. This also means that everyone has their own preference, with some being much more enthusiastic about their choice than others. For those that don’t start religions based on pieces of software, your preferences likely change over time, and this is how that happened for me.

April Fool's Day - Omni Style

Culture #WeAreOmni

April Fools is this Sunday and that’s no joke. Have any good pranks up your sleeve? My 7-year old son has been telling me about some of the pranks he would like to pull off like the Mentos in a Coke bottle trick or buying fake snakes and insects to place by unsuspecting people. I know my sister and I pulled some pranks on April Fool’s Day as kids, but none of them must have been too memorable, as none stick out for me!

Appleton: Omni's Favorite Things to Do

Culture #WeAreOmni Community

With home offices in Appleton, Madison and Milwaukee, we took it upon ourselves to find out from our team what they consider to be the best things to do in each city. We’ve covered Madison and Milwaukee. Now we turn our attention to Appleton. The Fox Cities are where I reside and I love what this area has to offer. It was enjoyable to see what my colleagues had to share about this area I call home. We didn’t limit our responses to Appleton and discussed the Fox Cities area as a whole. Dan Kuchler, Solutions Consultant, mentioned Octoberfest, the Children’s Farm at Plamann Park with its free petting zoo, Riverside Park in Neenah with its rocket ship slide/space themed park and CommunityFest. He also enjoys hiking and exploring at High Cliff State Park and visiting Wanick Choute Park and the Sherwood Splash Pad. Lindsey Dix, Employee Experience Specialist, enjoys music in Houdini Square on Thursday nights in Appleton. Emilie Rusch, Project Manager, can be found taking in the scene at Art at the Park in Appleton. Mat Gutschow, Solutions Consultant, stretched his areas of interest a little further out. He enjoys getting up to Mt. Bohemia for some snowboarding. He says it would be considered the Midwest’s premier powder resort. He also likes to go sailing in Door County and explore harbors and islands throughout Lake Michigan. Lawrence Valiquette, Software Engineer, likes to attend shows at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center located in downtown Appleton. Katie Escribano, Talent Development Specialist, likes to go boating on Lake Winnebago with her family and friends. You can also find Mat Gutshow enjoying Lake Winnebago when the winds are above 10mph when he is kiteboarding. Once the temps dip below freezing and the lakes have snow, Mat takes up snow kiting. The Farmers Market on Saturday mornings in downtown Appleton made Valiquette’s, Kuchler’s, and Rusch’s list. Another local event that made Kuchler’s, Rusch’s, and Dix’s list was the Mile of Music festival every summer. I love the Mile of Music and make it to an occasional Farmer’s Market as well. One of the things my son and I take the biggest advantage of are the area pools that the Fox Cities offers each summer. We can often be found at Erb Pool, Mead Pool, Neenah Pool, or the Menasha Pool. We also enjoy going frisbee golfing at one of the many parks in our area…our favorite being Plamann. And finally, for our sports fix, we take in a Timber Rattlers baseball game at Fox Cities Stadium. It always ends up being a option the whole family appreciates. What did we miss? What would you add to our list of best things to do in the area?
