Kris Williams

Sr Consultant, HR Services

I see the recruiting work I do as a form of community service. Every day I talk to scientists, engineers, research people—there’s always the possibility that candidate might have a role in discovering the next cure.

Education and Certifications

My natural curiosity helped me as a student and continues to serve me well when sourcing highly-skilled candidates and quickly determining right fit.

  • BA, University of Washington
  • Certified Diversity Recruiter

Community Involvement/Board Participation

Fortunately working for Resourceful HR, I’m in a position where I’m able to carve out time to volunteer; I see it as my responsibility to the community.

  • Member, NW Recruiters Association
  • Volunteer, YouthCare (supporting LGBTQ homeless youth)

Personal Interests

Outside of work, I spend time with my extraordinary grandchildren, make jewelry, cook, and read books like someday they’re going to disappear.

Client Work

“Finding the right candidate, for the right position, within the right organization.”

I appreciate that the way we work at Resourceful HR allows me to get to know my clients and become their recruiting partner. The client relationships I build help me find the right candidate, for the right position, within the right organization.

Often my clients are looking for candidates who have a very unique set of skills. It takes dedicated time and research to locate candidates with the required skillset. Most of these individuals are passive candidates—they aren’t actively looking for a new job. So it’s up to me to craft a message that inspires and calls them to take action.

It’s not about papering the world with resumes and hoping that something sticks. It’s about finding the right candidate. Recently that meant helping a biopharmaceutical organization find a scientist whose role will be pivotal in drug discovery for inflammatory diseases. When that type of “match” happens the whole community benefits. I may not be changing people’s lives, but I’m honored that the people I recruit just might.
