Our team was founded in 2021 by Susan Burns and Amanda Burns, a mother-daughter team from South Jersey. The formation of Burns Recruitment came in the midst of the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID shook up our lives, just like everyone across the world. In Susan’s case, who was working for a healthcare organization in Human Resources, COVID was the catalyst for her change. She decided to leave her corporate HR position and started applying for various positions in different industries. After a few interviews and working with an agency recruiter, she loved the experience and had the desire to do it herself.
During Covid, Amanda had graduated from college with a business degree from Florida Gulf Coast University and then moved back to NJ. Amanda was an aspiring entrepreneur and after she graduated, she worked temp jobs while working on various business plans in her free time.
With both of us being in limbo with aspirations for greater, we decided to join forces. Amanda’s entrepreneurial mindset, technology skills and fearless attitude paired perfectly with Susan’s old school work ethic, calculated planning and experience. Our yin-and yang dynamic is the foundation to our success.
We took the leap of faith in 2021 and are so grateful that we did. We have learned so much and continue to learn everyday. We truly value the partnerships we have made with both our clients and candidates. We pride ourselves on continuing education, staying up to date with technology, communicating regularly with candidates/clients and building relationships of mutual respect.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us better. We hope to get to know you better in return. :)
